In the chilling winter at a height of 10,500 feet, it was the CRPF which bore the brunt of the first onslaught of the Chinese aggression at Hot Spring in Ladakh on October 21, 1959, when a small CRPF patrol was ambushed by the Chinese army.
In the ensuing battle, 10 CRPF men made supreme sacrifice in the line of duty. In order to commemorate the exceptional act of Valour by the men of CRPF, 21st October is observed as ‘Police Commemoration Day' by all Police Forces across the country.
