“Everyone will say that it’s a great morale booster. But for me, it has a sentimental value. I dedicate this to my father who passed away three days ago,” said Assistant Inspector Sanjay Govilkar, who received the President’s Police Medal for Gallantry on Tuesday.
“It will inspire me to work better,” said Govilkar of D B Marg police station. He was attending a function organised by Mumbai Police Commissioner D. Sivanandhan on Wednesday to honour the medal recipients.
Recipients of the President’s Police Medal for Gallantry, President’s Police Medal for Meritorious Service and Police Medal for Meritorious Services were felicitated at the city police headquarters at Crawford Market.
