AJAB KHAN AFRIDI - THE GREAT PUKHTOON (History)
1923 , Abduction of Miss Ellis of Kohat, Pakistan
Lt. Gen. (retd) Ali Kuli Khan narrates about the incident of the abduction of Miss Molly Ellis:

Miss Molly Ellis was the daughter of an officer posted at Kohat. She was kidnapped from Kohat Cantonment in 1923 by Ajab Khan Afridi for the alleged insult to his wife by a British soldier. During this daring operation (which shook the British Empire to its foundations) the mother of Molly Ellis was unfortunately killed but Ajab Khan was successful in taking Molly to Tirah in the heart of the Tribal Area. My grandfather, Al-Haj K.B. Muhammad Kuli Khan, was then the Political Agent of Kurram Agency. He was requested by the then Chief Commissioner to kindly intervene in the matter. He along with a servant travelled to the heart of Tirah, where no Indian or British officer had ever been allowed or had dared to go before and stayed as the personal guest of the great Pir of the Tribals. He successfully negotiated with the Tribals and brought back Miss Ellis with him totally unharmed. For his bravery and humanitarian services the then British Viceroy conferred on him the illustrious medal of QAISER-E-HIND.
