On R-day, Awards Handed Out To Bravehearts And Policemen

Governor unfurls tricolour as scores of people crowd Marina to witness cultural programmes

N. Surya Kumar, a Chennai-based mechanic, was presented with the Anna Medal for Gallantry for nabbing a criminal.

On the night of April 17, Dr. Amutha Arumugam was at her Anna Nagar clinic as usual. All of a sudden, a criminal, Janakiraman, snatched her gold chain and escaped. She raised an alarm.

Surya Kumar, a worker in a mechanic shop situated opposite the clinic, heard her cries and saw a man coming out of the clinic, running fast.

Without a thought, Surya Kumar chased the offender and caught him within a short distance. For his bravery, he was awarded the medal at the 70th Republic Day celebrations in Chennai.
