Telangana State has received the highest number of gallantry medals for police personnel in the country on the eve of 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(CRPF), Indo-Tibetan Border Police(ITBP), and the Intelligence Bureau(IB).
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. The Police Medal for meritorious service was announced for 11 police personnel. Twenty-four more police personnel would be awarded the Police Medal for Gallantry (PMG). Warangal range DIG T. Prabhakar Rao and Counter Intelligence Cell DIG Rajesh Kumar were among the winners of PMG.
So let’s do:
1. Name the state, which has received the highest number of gallantry medals for police personnel in the country on the eve of Independence Day?
2. Expand the terms PPMG?
