Ambala:

Ishan Sharma (15), a Class IX student of Yamunanagar, will be conferred the Bal Shakti Award by President Ram Nath Kovind in New Delhi on Wednesday for his efforts in helping a Russian woman, who was cheated by her boyfriend.


He has received the invitation from the President’s office and he will be a special guest till January 26.

Ishan had helped Titova Elena, who was cheated by Deepak Kumar of Rattewali village in Panchkula district on the pretext of marriage.

Deepak had robbed Titova of $14,606 and a mobile phone in July 2019. “I helped a Russian woman in times of trouble. I want to motivate everyone to come forward and help others in a similar way,” he said.

His parents Sanjeev Sharma and Renuka are also feeling proud after his being nominated for the nationallevel award.

“Ishan was also awarded for his bravery on August 15, at the district level and has also received a state-level award. We sent his recommendation for the nationallevel Bal Shakti Award at the official website of the ministry of women and child development... It is a proud moment for us,” claimed Sanjeev, who runs a dispensary.

Ishan’s mother is a science teacher in a government school and his grandfather Nathiram Sharma is a retired government school principal. Deepak had proposed marriage to Moscow-based Titova and called her to India on July 18, 2019. They came in contact with each other through Facebook.

“On July 24, Deepak took Titova to Sawan Puri locality in Jagadhri, where he left her after taking $14,606 and a mobile phone.

“Ishan met her when she was distressed and looking for Deepak. He brought her home and communicated with her using an online translation tool,” a police official from Yamunanagar said Cops reached her after the family informed them at Jagadhri City police station (PS) and registered a complaint. Titova stayed in Yamunanagar and Ishan’s family members went to meet her every day during those days,” the same police official said.

Deepak and his friend Sandeep were booked on July 25, 2019 and arrested from Baltana in Zirakpur soon after
