PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Jan 25: Barket Ali became the first Special Police Officer of Jammu and Kashmir Police to be awarded with Shaurya Chakra for showing “exemplary courage” in killing two LeT militants in Doda district of Jammu last year.
Ali was part of a joint team of J & K Police and 26 Rashtriya Rifles which launched a cordon-and-search operation in Thatri forest area of Doda on May 19, 2010.
He was critically injured after killing Abu Anas and Abu Maz belonging to LeT. Ali breathed his last on his way to hospital.
“The courage displayed by him did not go unnoticed and Director General of JK Police Kuldeep Khoda recommended him for the gallantry medal despite Ali not being from regular police force,” a police spokesman said.
"He set an example of courage and our heart goes with the family which had an irreparable loss," Khoda said.
