The Indian National Army member from Mizoram had joined the Army Medical Corps of the British Indian Army on November 27, 1940, during World War 2. He was also captured by the Japanese Imperial Army in early 1942 during his posting at Penang Island in Malaysia.

In May 1942, he had joined the INA to fight against the British colonial rule. He was captured by the British in 1944 two years after joining the INA but was released from Lucknow Jail on January 15, 1945, after Mahatma Gandhi’s intervention.

He was awarded the ‘Tamrapatra Award’ in 1972 by the Government of India for his role in the struggle for Indian independence.
