Gujarat BSF IG gets President medal

AHMEDABAD: Gujarat BSF chief, IGP A K Sinhawas awarded the President's Police Medal for distinguished services on the occasion of BSF Raising Day in New Delhi by Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde. 

A science graduate born in Jharkhand, Sinha, 49, joined the Indian Police Service in 1987 and was allotted to the Kerala Cadre. He joined BSF in 2009 as IG BSF Gujarat. Sinha has been credited with streamlining border domination along the entire Gujarat frontier and having successfully stopped illegal activities. 

Under his leadership, the BSF gained access to once inaccessible Harami Nala area and established posts there, due to which illegal intrusions by Pakistan nationals have been completely restricted. 

He was awarded the President's Police Medal for Meritorious Service in 2003. The President of India conferred the President's Police Medal for Distinguished Service to him in 2011. 

The medal was presented on BSF Raising Day - December 10, 2012 at New Delhi.
