All you need to know about Police Commemoration Day

Every year, Police Commemoration Day is celebrated on October 21 to pay homage to policemen, who sacrificed their lives for the nation. The history behind the remembrance event can be traced to October 21, 1959. On that day, 20 Indian soldiers were martyred at the hands of the aggressive Chinese PLA in Laddakh. At the same time, 10 policemen were also killed in action while 7 were put behind bars.

The bodies of the fallen police officers were handed by the Chinese regime, after a month’s time on November 28, 1959. Reportedly, a total of 34,844 policemen have made the supreme sacrifice since 1947. Two years ago in 2018, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation of National Police Memorial in New Delhi. The memorial consists of a museum, wall of valour and a central black granite sculpture. It is located in Chanakyapuri in New Delhi and is spread across 6.12 acres.
