Before heading to the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) for the conference, Modi attended the Armed Forces Flag Day programme at the Raj Bhavan, district officials said.
He also met the widow and daughter of Major Kunal Gosavi, who was killed in the Nagrota terror attack in 2016, they said.
“The DGP/IGP conference is underway in Pune. Top police officials from all over India are attending this meet,” the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said in a tweet.
The prime minister released a 57-minute video featuring Armed Forces Flag Day on Twitter saying, “On Armed Forces Flag Day we salute the indomitable courage of our forces and their families. I also urge you to contribute the welfare of our forces.”
