As a nation, India is full of heroes, some of them wear capes while some don’t. While India is celebrating it’s 74th year of Independence with great pride, it is also essential to appreciate and recognize the blood and sweat of officers who stood by us and have been performing for the country tremendously.
A total of 32 CBI officers have been awarded the President’s Police Medal for their contribution and distinguished services, an official statement said.
