Amit shah placed a wreath on the structure that honored police personnel, who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.
The memorial in central Delhi’s Chanakyapuri is spread over 6.12 acres and has a 30-feet-tall central sculpture made of granite, a museum and a “Wall of Valour” with the names of policemen who died on duty since Independence.
After laying wreath at the memorial, the Home Minister visited the underground museum, which is the first police museum of its kind in India. The museum showcases over 2000 years of policing in the region, since the time of Kautilya’s system of law and order in 310 BC.
The renovated and refurbished memorial and museum was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in October 2018, which is also observed as the Police Commemoration Day in the country.
Amit Shah also signed the visitors book at the museum.
