In the early of 1946, the soldiers of Indian National Army (INA) reached Tehri Garhwal. It was a sorry face for them that they came as poor and defeated soldiers.  There were INA army men as Colonel Pitrishran Raturi and Lieutenant Himmat Singh Negi. Those soldiers )mostly from each patti)  spread the awareness of freedom among villagers.  In the presidentship of Pitrishran Raturi, the INA members decided to pay tribute to Shridev Suman on his martyred day in Tehri city.  Government declared article 144.  However, the INA soldiers organised the tribute meeting on the day (2).
