Dr Raj Shri Singh IPS SP Sirsa paid tribute at Police Lines Sirsa on Sunday to brave Central Police Reserve Force (CRPF) martyrs who laid down their lives, while fighting the Chinese insurgents in Ladakh.
A parade was also organised to mark the occasion and rich tributes were paid to 575 police personnel who laid down their lives while on duty all over the country during the past one year.
On October 21, 1959, Deputy Superintendent of Police Karam Singh and 20 soldiers were attacked by the Chinese Army at Hot Springs in Ladakh resulting in 10 casualties.
The survivors were imprisoned. Since then, October 21 is observed as Police Commemoration Day.
A function to mark the day was held at Police Lines SIRSA. This type of function is held in all Police Lines of the country in order to pay homage to the slain policemen throughout the country.
Hot Spring is situated in the Aksai area of Ladakh with an inhospitable terrain at an altitude ranging between 15000-16000 feet and passes over 18000 feet high devoid of any inhabitation or vegetation.
Every year, since 1961 a police party visits Hot Spring in Ladakh to pay homage to 10 CRPF personnel killed by the Chinese in 1959.
