  • Description

    PORTUGUESE FORCES IN GOA HAVE SURRENDERED AND THE INDIAN ATTACH HAS ENDED, IT WAS OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED IN NEW DELHI, DEC 19. PRIOR TO THE INVASION OF THE TINY PORTUGUESE ENCLAVE, ALL WAS QUIET IN KOLAHPUR AND BELGAUM, TWO INDIAN TOWNS NEAR THE BORDER.

    THERE WAS INCREASING ACTIVITY, HOWEVER, AT THE MILITARY HEADQUARTERS AT KOLAHPUR. TRUCKS WERE ON THE MOVE; AND IT WAS LATER REPORTED THAT THE INDIAN ATTACK WAS LARGELY ORGANIZED FROM HERE.

    SOME GOANS - ANTICIPATING AN INDIAN ADVANCE - HAVE FLED; AND HAVE BEEN ARRIVING AT KOLAHPUR. AT BELGAUM, LIFE WENT ON AS NORMAL ... UNTIL THE ATTACK, WHEN THE TOWN BECAME A MAJOR STRATEGIC POINT FOR THE OPERATION.
