Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday paid tribute at the National Police Memorial in Delhi.
The National Police Memorial in Delhi has a 30-foot-tall central sculpture made of granite, a museum, and a ‘Wall of Valour’ which contains the names of police officials who have died on duty after the independence.
“I visited the National Police Memorial this morning and paid tributes to our martyrs of the central and state police forces, who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty,” Shah tweeted after visiting the memorial located in the capital’s Chanakyapuri area.

Shah played a pivotal role in the BJP’s landslide victory in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, replaced senior leader Rajnath Singh as the Home Minister in the new Cabinet of the central government.
Rajnath Singh, who served as the Home Minister in the Modi government’s previous instinct, has replaced Nirmala Sitharaman as the Defence Minister.
Amit Shah is known for his analytical abilities and for his tough decision making. As Home Minister, Shah can play a crucial role in redefining the Centre’s relationship with the states.
Modi’s decision to bring Shah in his cabinet signals that he will now play a crucial role in the government, effectively the go-to man for the prime minister, several party leaders believe.
For instances, he has been the party’s second most powerful leader after Modi since he became its president in 2014 after the BJP-led NDA assumed power.
Amit Shah made his debut in Lok Sabha with a massive win from Gandhinagar, a seat earlier represented by BJP veteran L K Advani. Shah was earlier inducted to Rajya Sabha from BJP.
