Two children, Geeta and Sanjay Chopra, were kidnapped by two young men in Delhi. They later killed them.

In 1978, the Indian Council for Child Welfare instituted two bravery awards for children under the age of 16, the Sanjay Chopra Award and the Geeta Chopra Award, given each year along with the National Bravery Award.

On 26 January, the awardees take part in Republic Day Parade at Rajpath, New Delhi.

Sanjay Chopra Award and Geeta Chopra Award...awarded to children below the age of 16 for extraordinary acts of courage and bravery committed before that age. The connect dates back to the notorious and gory incident when two kids, namely, Sanjay and Geeta chopra were kidnapped and then brutally murdered back in 1978. The culprits were found and hanged some time later and their namesake award was announced to be given away every year on the eve of the Republic Day.
