Martyr Devashish Sharma's mother Nirmala Sharma

Bhopal/Nagpur: Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Bhupendra Singh meets martyr Devashish Sharma’s mother Nirmala Sharma in Bhopal.

Nirmala, mother of the martyred Army Captain, had accused Shahpur police in Madhya Pradesh of demanding a bribe to find bravery medals of her son that were stolen in 2014.

“Forget about original, all I want is duplicate medals. I will be really thankful to the government if they help me,” Nirmala said.

Captain Devashish Sharma of Punjab Battalion was killed on December 10, 1994, during Operation Rakshak.

He was posthumously awarded Kirti Chakra by the government of India and a bravery award by the Jammu and Kashmir government.

The medals were stolen during a theft at their house on 21 October, 2014, regarding which a report was lodged in Shahpura police station.
