Kaithal Superintendent of Police (SP) Shashank Kumar Sawan will be honoured with "Union Home Minister's Medal for Excellence in Investigation 2020" for speedy investigation in the rape of a six-year-old girl. It resulted in life imprisonment to the convict at Bahadurgarh in Jhajjar district.

Sawan is among 121 police personnel of the country who will get this medal that was constituted in 2018 with the objective of promoting high professional standards in investigation of crime.

Apart from Kaithal SP, two sub-inspectors of the Haryana Police — Anil Kumar and Rita Rani — will also be honoured with this medal.
