Inspector MC Sharma

Inspector MC Sharma

Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma was one of the recipients of the Police Medal for Gallantry this year on Republic Day (full list – pdf). He took three bullets during the encounter in Delhi in which two terrorists were killed, and one was captured, while two managed to escape. Head Constable Balwant, who also received a bullet, is reported to be out of danger.

… Inspector M C Sharma, a highly decorated officer of the special cell who has won gallantry awards seven times, was in a “critical condition” at the Holy Family hospital. [Rediff]

Take a couple of minutes off, and say a prayer for him to get well soon.

Update: He succumbed to the injuries on Friday, cremation service was held on Saturday. May his soul rest in peace.

And we need better execution of counter-terrorism operations. We can’t afford to lose people like him to hasty and insufficient planning.
