It was on the intervening night of December 3 and 4, 1971, when Lance Naik Albert Ekka and his men of the 14 Guards Regiment of the Indian Army made the supreme sacrifice while defending the nation against the forces of Pakistan, in the process saving Agartala from a foreign invasion. The battle which safeguarded Agartala, took place near Gangasagar railway station, 7 Km from the state capital in 1971. LN Ekka was posthumously awarded India’s highest gallantry award the Param Vir Chakra (PVC).
