Besides, a company under the command of Captain Morshed of 2nd East Bengal, a company under the command of Mahfuz from sector no-1 and another company under the command of Lt. Mansur participated in the battle of Bilonia.  On 22nd October, the position of enemy soldiers was rackied. Though entrance in the middle part of enemy position was done easily but it was difficult to enter deep into the enemy position. Even the company commander shared the recky.

While coming back a leg of Subedar Jabber of East Bengal got seriously injured by anti-personal mine.

The whole battalion assembled at Rajnagar on the night of 2nd November. It was raining continuously from 31 October. The Mukti Bahini (Liberation fighters) proceeded ahead within constant heavy rains. First of all B company under the leadership of Lt. Mizan, then C company under Lt. Didar and last  2nd  East Bengal Company under Captain Morshed began to infiltrate through the middle part of the enemy position and crossed the river Muhuri in between Chandana and Suar Bazar. Captain Mahfuz and Lt. Mansur entered through Guthuma and joined B company of 10th East Bengal.

The Pak Army could not guess anything up to 6-30 P. M. of 3 November. At that moment Habilder Ear Ahmed saw a Pak officer coming from Saliar side  with five soldiers in a railway trolley and started firing with L M G.  The fighting continued for the whole night. On 4th November afternoon all on a sudden 4 Pakistani Jets fired rocket on the position of freedom fighters. The situation remained unchanged up to afternoon of 5 November.

The commander was ordered to liberate the whole pocket from Bilonia railway station to Feni. Parshuram, Chithulia , Fulgazi, Munshirhat, Bilonia and Feni were the strongholds of Pak Army. The freedom fighters took a firm determination to drive out the enemy forces from these places. This was a memorable day in the liberation war of Feni.

The freedom fighters were silently and very carefully advancing to trap the enemy. They knew that the whole plan would be upset if the enemy forces could guess their position. At night the freedom fighters communicated with their commanders. They  encircled the enemy soldiers at Parshuram and Chithulia before dawn. This was informed through wireless to General Hira of Mitra Bahini who congratulated the Muktibahini for this wonderful job. That night with the help of Mitra Bahini artillery forces fierce attack was unleashed on Parshuram and Bilonia. The enemy forces could not stand for long. Almost 80% of them were killed in this fighting. Parshuram & Bilonia were captured within the night. Bilonia was a strong camp of Pak Army and was under the command of 15 Baluch Regiment. Muktibahini took the technic of secret infiltration as a war strategy. From May to 18 July some stray fighting took place to capture Bilonia. But the Pak Army became successful & made their position strong. The famous Bilonia battle took place in November.
