Gurugram 1962 War Memorial vandalised
In a despicable act, a group of miscreants vandalised the Rezang La Pass War Memorial on Tuesday.
The war memorial that was opened in 2012 is situated in Karterpuri in Sector-23 near Palam Vihar. It is spread in the area of 7,000 square feet.
Enraged over the incident, Raman Malik, a prominent leader from a political party advocated strictest of action against the perpetrators.
"I demand the Chief Minister and the city police commissioner to take action against these miscreants who have maligned our honour," Malik said.
Though not ascertained, it is believed that the vandalisation was caused by certain drunkards around the area.
The war memorial had been built in the memory of 114 Army soldiers who were martyred during the 1962 war against the 5,000 strong Chinese soldiers.
Situated at an altitude of 17,000 feet around 30 km of South of Chusul valley in Ladakh, it was one of the most difficult battles fought by the Indian soldiers.
A majority of the war heroes of the 13th Kumaon regiment that fought the battle at Rezang La were from South Haryana districts of Gurugram, Rewari and Mahendragarh
