Bengaluru: Traffic cop goes beyond call of duty, joins offenders for a cause

Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (DC)

Bengaluru, Jun 14: In a rare, yet heart-warming incident, a traffic police from here joined two traffic norm violators for a cause.

The incident occurred on Tuesday June 12, when Lokesh K, a traffic head constable attached to Kumaraswamy Layout Traffic Police Station, was on duty at Sarakki Junction at around 5.30 pm. He spotted two students Uday and Dhanush approaching towards him on a bike without one of them wearing helmet. Both students of New Horizon College in Marathahalli had taken a friend’s two-wheeler and were rushing towards Sagar Hospital in K S Layout.

The cop intercepted the bike and issued a challan of Rs 100 since the pillion rider was not wearing a helmet. He asked the students why they were in hurry and they told him that one of the relatives of their physical education teacher was in need to blood. They told that the patient was supposed to undergo surgery the next morning.

Lokesh decided to chip in since blood group of the patient was the same as his, A+ve. Immediately he informed his senior at the spot and went beyond his call of duty. He followed the students to the hospital to save a life. The blood was later exchanged with another private hospital in Banashankari where the patient’s surgery was conducted the following morning. The surgery was said to be successful and the patient was stable.

Uday speaking about the incident, said, "My perception of city traffic police was different till last evening. Now, I have newfound respect for them."

The noble deed of the cop has been widely appreciated by all.
