How Naga Regiment Filled Pakistani Soldiers With Fear


This is a story about Naga Regiment.

This incident happened when Naga Regiment was newly raised in the Indian Army and Pakis had no clue what material the Nagas were made of!

When the Nagas moved in, Pakistani fired 2″ mortar shells on a their forward
post (This has been the usual way to welcome newly inducted Indian Army units by the Pakistani for ages), but they did not retaliate. Then, for the next two consecutive nights, a couple of Pakistani soldiers would cross over to the Indian side, lob hand-grenades at the Naga post and run back.

On the third night, a few Naga soldiers laid an ambush and caught 2 Pakistani. They brought the Pakistani soldiers back enough to be hidden from the Pakistan OP sights. They tied the Pakis to a tree, lit a fire and performed a traditional Naga dance! Then they chopped a leg off one of the Pakistani soldiers and literally barbecued it over the fire.

Both the Pakistani soldiers were let off the next morning, but not before the were made to hear this dialogue between a Naga Havildar and a Sepoy:

Sepoy: Ustaad, inko rakhte hain, bilkul chicken jaisa taste hai. (Sir, let’s keep them, they taste like chicken).

Havildar: Nahi re, inko jaane do, yeh dono bahut kamjor hain. Ab yahan 3 saal rehna hai; tu tension mat le, aur bahut mote tagde milenge. (No, let them go. Both are very weak. We have to stay here for 3 years now. Don’t worry, we will get many healthy ones.)

This news spread like wildfire, and the Pakis (Baluch Regiment) across the LOC were thereafter not to be seen even through binoculars, till the Naga battalion was replaced by another unit after 3 years.
