  • The Story of Sela Pass
  • Sela was a local girl who loved Jaswant, an Indian soldier against her father’s wishes. During the Indo-China war, Jaswant Singh fought the Chinese for three days by fooling them while Sela brought him ammunition and food from the camp.
    Jaswant single handedly fought with the chinese army, Jaswant positioned himself on a hill top in a long trench and placed rifles to give an impression that the entire army was behind him. Finally he was betrayed by Sela’s father and was captured and beheaded by the Chinese. Sela in agony committed suicide by jumping from a hillock. Sela Pass at 13,700 feet named after her.
