A total of 264 police personnel, including 11 of the Delhi Police were killed in one year in India while serving in their respective forces.

Bhardwaj, and serving Delhi Police officers and men paid homage by laying wreath at the memorial. A two-minute silence was observed in remembrance of the martyrs.

"Sixty-one years ago on 21st October 1959 on this very day, a small troop of the Indian policemen who were stationed at Ladakh for the safety of the nation was suddenly ambushed and attacked by a huge number of Chinese soldiers who were hiding in the mountains.

"During the attack, 10 Indian police personnel were martyred. Since then, in order to pay homage to these brave martyrs, we remember them on this day. Simultaneously, we also pay homage to all those brave personnel who sacrificed their lives in the service of the nation in the last one year," said a senior Police officer.
