Indian Origin Officer Neil Basu Honoured In The United Kingdom For 'Toughest Policing Role'

In a moment of pride for India, Scotland Yard's first Indian-origin counter-terrorism chief Neil Basu has won the Asian Achievers' Award in the Uniformed and Civil Services category for his contribution to policing in the UK.



Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu is the Metropolitan Police's National Lead for Counter Terrorism and the Head of the Met Police's Specialist Operations. On Friday, Basu sent a colleague from the force to receive the award on his behalf at the 18th annual awards event, organised by UK-based media house Asian Business Publications Limited (ABPL) Group.

Prime Minister Theresa May noted in her message for the awards night in Mayfair, London that "(British Asians) continue to excel across all spheres of society...I am determined to ensure the government looks more like the country it serves, and to see a new generation creating opportunities for people across the whole of the UK."
