Seyidov Mahharm was also among those brave sons of the country. The bloody battles were still going on on the 18th of Jnauary and there were a lot of killed and wounded people.

But the battle was not fully over yet and Captain Azer Seyidov was surrounded by the enemy. Thus, Maharram once again threw himself to the battle in order to save the captain. He managed to reach the place where captain was and now they were both surrounded by the enemy and the firing would not stop. The vicious enemy would fire at them from every angle. In spite of the deadly and difficult situation, they were able to break the siege and leave the place of battle. Maharram was happy to be able to save the life of the Captain Azer Seyidov.
