A traffic police officer in India won the hearts of people after he pulled off the bravest act of 2017.
The officer identified as Sub-Inspector ML Nijalingappa, who had expected to be sacked from his job after the act, was working at his post at the Bengaluru Trinity Circle when the Indian president’s convoy appeared at the busy junction.
Almost at the same time, an ambulance handling emergency services for a private hospital near HAL showed up looking for room to pass through.
The traffic officer made a precise decision to stop the president’s convoy, in order to allow the ambulance pass.
Instead of facing some sort of punishment for ‘daring’ to stop President Pranab Mukherjee’s convoy, the Bengaluru police announced a reward for him.
Taking to Twitter, the deputy commissioner of police overseeing the traffic east division, Abhei Goyal, praised the officer.
The commissioner of police, Praveen Sood also tweeted his praise.
