Sardar Khan was a road engineer who got pulled into the struggle to destroy a mountain pass that would block the zombies from entering India’s safe zone in the Himalayas. Sergeant Mukherjee needed someone to drive him so he could see to this, and he decided Khan could do it. Khan’s interview describes the difficulty of carrying out the Redeker Plan in India, where many people kept hurrying across the pass even though the army was trying to clear it so they could blow it up.
