The IPS Association remembers on Wednesday remembered Daulat Singh Negi on the 30th anniversary of his martyrdom.

IPS officer Daulat Singh Negi, who was serving as the superintendent of police (SP) of Dibrugarh district, was martyred during an ambush by United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) on his way back home after a raid on July 29, 1990.

“IPS Association remembers Shri Daulat Singh Negi on 30th anniversary of his martyrdom. Posted as Superintendent of Police, Dibrugarh, Sh. Negi was on his way back from a raid when he was ambushed by insurgents,” the IPS Association tweeted on Wednesday.

“His life & service will inspire generations to come,” the Association said.

“Daulat Singh Negi – the braveheart who took on ULFA till his last breath,” the Association writes while sharing a picture of the brave police officer.
