  2. I am from ghaziabad and I do remember Mr. Misra’s daring acts from the news and his closed acquaintances who are my close friends. Salute to such an IPS officer who is an example for the nation to follow. Wish I can join the forces now and do something for my nation, the corrupt cities specially. But age factor turns me down. Wish to meet him soon when I travel back to India next year.
