Bikramjit Singh Brar, one of Punjab’s most decorated cops, is up for a Police Medal for Gallantry.
Brar, whose policeman father was killed in 1988 during the peak of Punjab’s militancy, was part of a list of names for police medals that the central government released ahead of the Republic Day.
This would be Brar’s third Police Medal for Gallantry and was previously given Union Home Minister’s Medal for Excellence in Investigation last year. He is the first cop from Punjab to given the Home Minister’s medal and the only one in Punjab to have won three gallantry awards.
