The Union Home Minister’s Special Operation Medal, 2020, was conferred on five Gujarat Police’s Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) officers, including its chief DIG Himanshu Shukla, a communication from the Ministry of Home Affairs said Saturday.
The five officers, including Shukla, Superintendent of Police Imtiyaz Shaikh, Deputy SP Kanubhai Patel, Inspector Vijaykumar Malhotra and Sub-inspector Ketan Bhuva, had been a part of an operation to arrest alleged ISIS sympathiser, Zafar Ali, from Vadodara in January this year.
Gujarat Police DGP Ashish Bhatia took to social media to congratulate the team for the award.
