    Myself Arun Pokhriyal, I am the younger son of the martyr Late Shiv Kumar Pokhriyal. He is my father and he gave his life for the pride of mother India in an ambush attack near Churachandpur district in Manipur in 27th April 1995. My father was in the rank of Nb Sub in 14th Garhwal Rifles
    There were some four terrorist groups in Eastern area namely Naga, Ulfa, Bodo & Kuki. I have not sufficient information on the event happened there. I also want to know the reality of all about this event. We have an honour certificate signed by honourable chief of the Army staff general V. P. Malik mentioned my father gave his life under Operation Hifazat in 1995 after fighting with the terrorist.
    Kindly collect the overall information from the area where this event happened. I will be happy if the complete story will revealed.
    I live in Kotdwar city in Uttarakhand state in the Pauri Garhwal district, 246149. We are two siblings, elder one is my sister who got married in 2007. I live with my mother and doing a private job in locality.
    Thank you
    Arun Pokhriyal
