Vir Chakra winner, Kargil war hero finally gets double promotion after working as traffic cop for 10 years

Satnam Singh, the Head Constable in the Punjab Police, was managing traffic in Sangrur for past 10 years. Little did people around him know that he was a Kargil war hero, who was awarded Vir Chakra for his exemplary courage during the military operations at Tiger Hill. Singh was posted in the Drass sector during Operation Vijay and was part of the team that helped the Indian Army capture Tiger Hill. In what can be called as course correction, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh finally gave double promotion to Satnam Singh on Monday.
“Really happy to pipp #Kargil war hero Satpal Singh as ASI. Only feel sorry he didn’t get his due earlier. We’ve decided to come out with policy to prevent such injustice in future. It’ll ensure 1-rank promotion for gallantry award winning defence & police personnel from Punjab,” the Punjab Chief Minister said on Twitter while posting the photos of the ceremony.
