Tezpur Frontier

 

  

 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF FORMATION OF SSB IN TEZPUR

                  The  very idea  for creation of a resistance organization at the time of Chinese aggression  in 1962 had been derived by the  senior officers of the Govt. when they have seen the courage, dedication, devoted efforts of some young boys of TEZPUR area who had formed an organization namely  Youth Emergency  Force to fight against the Chinese. This young group already involved  in  evacuation of  weapons from north bank to south bank of Brahamputra beside helping the local administration. There was many deliberations  with the members of the youth emergency force by senior Army and police officers on many occasions  at circuit house Tezpur. All such discussions have culminated in to the creation of SPECIAL SERVICE BUREAU (SSB)   during 1963. Only two members of the YOUTH EMERGENCY FORCE are alive at present at Tezpur
