On the occasion of Vijay Diwas Defence Minister paid tributes to soldiers

Newdelhi:16/12/17;On the occasion of Vijay Diwas, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat, Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sunil Lanba and Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Birender Singh Dhanoa paid tributes to soldiers who lost their lives in 1971 Indo-Pak war at India Gate in the national capital today.

Meanwhile, the Indian Army paid tributes to soldiers at Army Garrison Ground in Mumbai’s Colaba earlier in the day.

The Indo-Pakistan War of 1971 is heralded as one of the most convincing victories of the annals of the military history.

It culminated with the abject surrender of Pakistani forces in East Pakistan (now, Bangladesh), with almost 1,00,000 being taken prisoners of war (PoWs), and eventually leading up to the liberation of Bangladesh on December 16. India and Bangladesh, since then, celebrate Vijay Diwas, also known as the Victory Day, every year to mark both the countries’ military victory over Pakistan.
