Statues of four fighters who had defeated the then East India Company force in the battle of Sindhuligadhi, safeguarding the integrity and the nation, have been unveiled in Sindhuli.

Chief of Army Staff Purna Chandra Thapa unveiled the statues of the historic personalities amidst a program here today.
