About Commemoration Day (A SirsaNews Special)
Soon after Independence, contingents of the CRPF were sent on Kutch, Rajasthan and Sindh borders to check infiltration and trans-border crimes. They were, subsequently, deployed on the Pakistan border in Jammu and Kashmir following attacks launched by the Pakistani infiltrators. The CRPF bore the brunt of the first Chinese attack on India at Hot Springs (Ladakh) on October 21, 1959. A small CRPF patrol was ambushed by the Chinese in which ten of its men made their supreme sacrifice for the country. Their martyrdom on October 21 is remembered throughout the country as the Police Commemoration Day every year.
In Sirsa rich homage was paid by various officers and Jawans of the Police Force at Police Lines Campus today. ASP Sajjan Singh, DSP HQ SS Sheoran, SHO City Sh. Hansraj, Sh Jagdish Chander SHO Sadar also paid homage. See Pictures.
