Two children, Geeta and Sanjay Chopra, were kidnapped by two young men, Ranga Khus (Kuljeet Singh) and Billa (Jasbir Singh), who planned to demand ransom from the parents of the children. Their plans went awry when the car they were in was involved in a traffic accident with a public bus.They subsequently murdered the children and fled from Delhi. They were arrested on a train a few months later, tried, and hanged for the crime in 1982.The crime was an important psychological turning point for residents of Delhi in changing their perceptions of living in a reasonably safe city to one of living with crime.
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 .
