The nation paid tribute to these martyrs while celebrating the 60th Republic Day. The government announced various awards in their honor.


Malegaon that had specially sent a delegation from the town to attend the funeral of Hemant Karkare was not behind in remembering the martyrs. Every function that was organized to commemorate the Republic Day saw the martyrs being remembered with highest regards and due honor. The day ended with the Police Department led by Additional Superintendent of Police Sanjay Patil organizing a special program to pay tribute to the slain cops. Sanjay Patil personally showed the glimpses of the slain cops, their funeral processions and few of their inspiring videos on computer projector.


The interesting video session was followed by a colorful yet somber orchestra performed by Kalpana Patil, Nazeer Khan and their troop who had come from nearby Aurangabad. Yaad Karo Qurbaani, as the theme of this program ran backside of the platform, the singers came and paid their tribute by singing the selected heartbreaking patriotic songs from the Hindi movies.
