Bantwal: “They rescued me after I met with an accident. When I asked for a selfie with them, they refused saying that they are not politicians to highlight their work. They also said that it is their duty to help and give justice to the public,” wrote Adithya Narayan in a Facebook post. He was expressing his gratefulness and appreciating the selfless service of the Bantwal police, calling them the real warriors.

Narrating the incident, Adithya Narayan wrote that he met with an accident on Saturday, June 6. He says that it was around 9.30 pm when he finished a meeting at Karkala and was heading back to Puttur. When he reached Melkar, a truck that was coming from the opposite direction did not dim its headlights, blinding him and causing him to veer his two-wheeler to the side of the road where he fell. Unable to get up, he tried to call the ambulance and police helpline number 100. However, he failed to get a quick response.

Later, he found the contact number of the Bantwal sub-inspector on Google. When he called the SI, the latter responded quickly and asked his station personnel to reach the spot with a van. The highway patrol vehicle also arrived along with the van of the Bantwal Police.

The police and home guard personnel in the vehicle administered first aid to him and also made small repairs to his vehicle.

After narrating his story, Adithya told the media that instead of highlighting the atrocities of the police, they should emphasize the good work as well.

The Facebook post has gone viral and has garnered thousands of shares and comments soon after it was posted.
