Amit k
Q. News report say the state government has recommended slain cops Hemant Karkare,Ashok Kamte and Vijay Salaskar for posthumous Ashok Chakras.Also, BSG Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan may be considered for a bravery award in the days to come. But there's no mention of API Tukaram Ombale, who held on to terrorist Qasab's gun at Girgaum, allowing other cops to overpower him. He lost his life,but gave the police their prize catch.Is this not devotion to duty and courage in the face of the enemy? Ombale should be honoured with a Bharat Ratna. He deserves it. M i rite? Your views pl??
Amit K:  A. I agree with you 100%. It is sad that some acts of valor are not recognized fully. more
