Working beyond the ‘Call of Duty’ is not something which everyone does. But a Bengaluru Cop had worked beyond his duty to save a life of a person.
Last Tuesday, Lokesh K, a traffic head constable attached to Kumaraswamy Layout Traffic Police Station was busy handling traffic during the evening rush hour.
Lokesh said that while he was on duty at Sarakki junction, he saw two youngsters on a bike, approaching him. However, the pillion rider was without a helmet. Lokesh immediately stopped their motorcycle and issued a challan of Rs 100.
Only after the duo paid the fine, is when Lokesh learned that Udhay and Dhanush, students of New Horizon College in Marathahalli, were rushing towards KSR Layout on their friend’s two-wheeler to arrange for A +ve blood for an ailing relative of their teacher.
Here is what the cop had to say regarding the incident.
THEY NEEDED A+VE BLOOD, AND SINCE I HAVE THE SAME BLOOD GROUP, I DECIDED TO CHIP IN.” TALKING ABOUT HIS DEED, HE SAID THAT SOMETIMES, IT FEELS GOOD TO DO SOMETHING SELFLESSLY.
After informing another senior officer at the post, Lokesh followed the duo on his bike to Sagar Hospital.
His act of selflessness earned a lot of applauds, not only from his supervisors but also from the Bangalore City Traffic Police
THe Bengaluru Cop’s act of kindness not only restores our faith in humanity but encourages a fact that humanity lies before the duties.
