13 Year Old Boy Selected for National Bravery Award

Meet Dishant Mehndiratta, a 13-year-old boy, who saved his mother from a robber, has been selected for National Bravery Award-2015 by the Indian Council for Child Welfare. The incident took place when Dishant was at his home with his mother and an unidentified man came to meet his father. The man threatened to kill the children, and asked them to get all the cash and valuables in the house. Taking advantage of a momentarily lapse on the part of the accused, Dishant overpowered the assailant. Both Dishant and his mother suffered minor injuries, but were able to raise alarm, and get the robber arrested.
