Secondly a thirty years old Sub Inspector Altaf Ahmed Dar of J&K Police who sacrificed his life during an encounter in Srinagar.

That what, inspired me to roll my camera bringing these plights to my audiences. We should come forward for such families sharing their pain and gain” said Beenu, a former student of philosophy from PU, Chandigarh. The film also conveyed the notions of noted cricketer Gautam Gambhir and actor Akshay Kumar.

Present on the occasion, Mr Saubhagya Vardhan, Director, NZCC, this film will be screened for the students in association of local colleges and schools across the spread of his department so that each one realize the importance of police in our society.
