The history

On October 21, the patrolling party of Central Reserve Police Force led by sub inspector Karan Singh was ambushed by the Chinese force at Hot Springs situated in Ladakh.

Ten jawans were killed in the ambush. The bravery and sacrifice of jawans fighting at the height of 16,000 feet in extreme weather conditions and against all odds set an example of rarest of the rare courage. Indo-Tibetan Border Police sent a representative party of all police forces in the country to Hot Springs, Ladakh, every year to pay homage to the martyrs who laid down their lives on October 21 while guarding national frontiers. Since then, National Police Commemoration Day is observed every year.
