17 August 2016 Current Affairs: Telangana State has received the highest number of gallantry medals for police personnel in the country on the 70th Independence Day. It was the only State unit to secure the President’s police medal for gallantry (PPMG).
The other units to receive the award this year were Central Reserve Police Force, Indo-Tibetan Border Police, and the Intelligence Bureau.
Sub-Inspector Duddekula Siddaiah and Constable Chougoni Nagaraju, who lost their lives trying to catch two Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) operatives in Nalgonda district last year, were announced as the recipients of the PPMG.
Two SIMI operatives had gunned down a police Constable and a Home Guard at Suryapet bus stand in Nalgonda on April 2, 2015. The entire Nalgonda district police were looking out for the duo.
Apart from the two policemen who would be honoured with the gallantry medal posthumously, Telangana also got a President’s Police Medal for distinguished service to Fire Services Director General Rajiv Ratan.
