The 93 Battalion of Border Security Force (BSF), Chedema, Kohima, under its battalion commander, Commandant Surinder Singh, organised a rally/half marathon here Tuesday to commemorate the sacrifice of Indian soldiers martyred in the 1971 war.

Superintendent of Police (SP), Kohima, Manoj Kumar,  flagged off the 15 km marathon which took off from Police Headquarters, Kohima, traversed along main town onto Pezielietsie Junction and wheered towards Don Bosco School and finally winded up at the battalion’s headquarters. Prior to the flagging off, the Commandant highlighted that the 93 Bn was one of the oldest battalions in the country which was raised on 1st April, 1968.

When the 1971 war broke out the battalion was deployed in Tripura where it took active part in the war and earned huge laurels because of the commendable services it rendered, the commandant said.

He added that the battalion had organised the marathon to remember and pay tribute to their comrades who made the ultimate sacrifice for “our” motherland and also to draw inspiration from their martyrdom. Inspector Surender Kumar also gave a brief insight into the main motive behind organising the marathon. 

A total of around 50 jawans along with the Commandant took off from the starting point, who were later joined by their fellow jawans stationed at strategic locations along the route taking the total to 120 jawans who completed the marathon.
