  • Share

Summary

The claim that IPS officer D. Roopa has refused to accept the Modi government's award owing to BJP MP Pragya Thakur's remarks on 26/11 martyr Hemant Karkare is false. However, a few months back she had refused to accept NAMMA Bangalore Award because of a huge cash reward.

A Twitter user Mullah Nu Uddin Jumlebaaz tweeted that "IPS Roopa Yadav has refused to accept the Modi government's award, my conscience does not permit that our country's martyr Hemant Karkare, who has received the highest honor of gallantry, was called anti-national and traitor by the newly elected MP of BJP who is a terror accused.".

The tweet received  998 retweets and 3.4k likes.

 

The post is also getting viral on Facebook a page name Bhartiya Naagrik Sammer Raza "IPS Roopa Yadav has refused to accept the Modi government's award, my conscience does not permit that our country's martyr Hemant Karkare, who has received the highest honor of gallantry, was called anti-national and traitor by the newly elected MP of BJP who is a terror accused. and the party is pretending to give me awards here. This woman deserves a salute".

D. Roopa's clarification on Twitter

IPS D. Roopa retweeted Mullah Nu Uddin Jumlebaaz's post with the caption "Clarifying this-- firstly there's no such award for cops. We get the President's, Police Medal. I have already got President's Police Medal for meritorious service. Pic is mine. But surname mentioned is incorrect".

She was awarded the President's Police Medal in September 2017 by Karnataka governer.

According to Amar Ujala post, 2 months ago D. Roopa had refused to accept the NAMMA Bangalore Award because of a huge cash reward. In a letter written to the President of NAMMA Bangalore Foundation, a Bangalore-based non-governmental organization, Rupa said that her conscience does not allow her to accept this reward. Rupa had written in his letter that every government employee is expected to remain neutral while maintaining equal distances from semi-political and unions who are also involved with politics. Only then can the public servants maintain their clear and unbiased image in the eyes of the people. 

Conclusion: The claim is false that D. Roopa has refused to accept the Modi government's award because there is no such award for cops and Roopa herself mentioned that the picture in the viral post is accurate but the surname used is incorrect.
