Watch: Amit Shah pays tribute to police personnel who died in line of duty

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday paid tribute to police personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty.

The Home Minister paid tribute at National Police Memorial on Police Commemoration Day.

"My tributes to police personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty.

So far, 35,398 police personnel have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Names of all those police personnel are marked here at the wall.

This memorial is not just made of bricks and cement.

This memorial remembers the martyrdom of our soldiers.

We salute the martyrdom of brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives," he said.

The police memorial in the national capital is spread over 6.12 acres.

It has a 30-foot tall heavy black granite central sculpture and a museum and 'Wall of Valour' bearing names of police personnel who died on duty.

The Police Commemoration Day is observed every year on October 21.

The day is observed in memory of CRPF jawans who died in Ladakh while fighting Chinese troops on this day in 1959.
