Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday asserted that 2023 will be a significant year for the Delhi Police as the force will have to stay alert for the upcoming G20 summit to be attended by international dignitaries from across the world. Speaking at the 76th Raising Day parade of the Delhi Police, he also paid tributes to ASI Shambhu Dayal, who was stabbed to death by a snatcher in west Delhi’s Mayapuri last month.
“I pay tribute to ASI Shambhu Dayal whose supreme sacrifice brought tears to everyone’s eyes,” he said.
Dayal (57) was stabbed multiple times by a man he nabbed for allegedly snatching a mobile phone in Mayapuri. Dayal fought for his life for four days, but succumbed to injuries on January 8.
