According to a defence release, it was a regular visit of senior officers to understand and get acquainted with operational issues of the region, but more importantly the cultural values of the people of Nagaland. Appreciating the way that cemetery has been maintained, leader of the contingent, Brig. Hemant Mahajan said “Nagaland was doing a great honour to our brave soldiers who gave the supreme sacrifice for our today”, and it was for entire country to emulate. He said even the Indian Army was committed and had constructed a number of war memorials across the length and breadth of the country to honour its brave soldiers who had laid down their lives to safeguard the integrity of the nation. All visiting officers were highly impressed when DIGAR (North), Brig. Bhupinder Singh briefed them about the rich cultural heritage which was prevalent all over, in the state of Nagaland.
