Force One Chief IPS Krishna Prakash has successfully completed the Comrades Marathon in South Africa. Teh Comrades Marathon is an ultramarathon of approximately 89 kilometres (55 miles) which is run annually in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa between the cities of Durban and Pietermaritzburg. It is the world’s largest and oldest ultramarathon race. The direction of the race alternates each year between the “up” run (87 km) starting from Durban and the “down” run (now 90.184 km) starting from Pietermaritzburg.
IPS Krishna Prakash was the first Civil Servant to complete Iron Man and Ultra Man events and now becomes the first Indian Civil Servant to complete the Comrades Ultra Marathon.
He will be arriving at Terminal 2 at 2 pm at Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, Mumbai on Tuesday 13th June.
Krishna Prakash’s impressive career profile showcases his dedication and impact as an IPS officer. Since joining the service in 1998, he has consistently left a mark in every posting he has held across Maharashtra. Whether it be challenging areas like Malegaon, Buldhana, Ahmednagar, South Mumbai, or the Naxalite-infested regions of Gadchiroli district, Krishna Prakash has always taken a proactive approach. Unlike many of his counterparts who shy away from such assignments, often seeking more favorable postings through their connections, Krishna Prakash has not only served in these areas but has also effectively curbed crime rates.
In addition to his tough stance on crime, Krishna Prakash has demonstrated his compassion by undertaking the rehabilitation of the nomadic Phase Pardhis, a tribal community notorious for their brutal and ruthless robberies. His efforts aimed to steer them away from illegal and criminal activities, showcasing his empathetic side alongside his commitment to maintaining law and order.
