Trivandrum: Our nation is paying tribute to the police personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty. As part of this, various events are being organized in the districts, including a function to pay homage to the Police Headquarters at Dheerasmriti Bhoomi.
On October 21, 1959, ten people were killed in a resistance attack by Chinese troops on a group of police officers who went missing in Hot Spring, Ladakh. Every year on the day of commemoration of that heroic struggle and sacrifice, a function is organized to pay tributes to the members of various police forces of the country who lost their lives in the line of duty. The police are the unit that works for the safety and well-being of the community. Like foreign attacks, destructive forces within the country are trying to destabilize the nation. Vigilant action against it is the main task of our police. Fairly, with everlasting vigilance, the police guarded the people.
A functioning police force is essential for any society. In the midst of such activities, there are many soldiers who lost their lives last year. Tributes are paid to the memory of all the police personnel who died in the line of duty, including them. She shares the grief of her family members who are living with the pain of separation.‘When you go home, tell them of us, and say: For their tomorrow, We gave our today’ is written on the war memorial in Kohima. As those lines point out, I hope that the memories of the brave soldiers who left their ‘today’ for our ‘tomorrow’ will inspire not only all other soldiers but society as a whole.
