Explained: The agitation demanding Ahir Regiment in the Indian Army that's likely to bring Delhi to a standstill
Protesters under the banner of the 'Sanyukt Ahir Regiment Morcha' are staging a march on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway (from Kherki Dhaulla toll to Hero Honda Chowk) today, demanding that their call for a separate regiment in the Indian Army be adhered to
The Battle of Rezang La went down in the annals of military history as one of the greatest last stands of all times – comparable probably only to the famous Battle of Saragarhi, in the Indian context.
On 18 November 1962, the Charlie Company of the 13 Kumaon Battalion, Kumaon Regiment, fought a Chinese attack at Rezang La Pass in Ladakh. The company comprised 120 soldiers and was led by Maj. Shaitan Singh. Of these, 110 were martyred in the attack.
