Police Commemoration Day to be observed today
Police Commemoration Day will be observed today. The day is observed on 21st October every year to honor the loyalty and supreme sacrifice of police personnel for the nation.
It was on this day in 1959 when the Central Reserve Police Force, CRPF scripted a saga of valor and sacrifice in the inaccessible, inhospitable terrain of Hot Springs in Ladakh.
A patrol party of twenty personnel of CRPF and Intelligence Bureau had gone to search for a missing reconnaissance party when it was ambushed by the Chinese Army.
In spite of the sudden attack and disadvantageous tactical position, they fought valiantly against the Chinese army personnel who were in large numbers and heavily armed. In this battle, ten CRPF men were martyred in defense of the country.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah will pay tribute to martyred police personnel at National Police Memorial in New Delhi today morning.
