Mysuru: People always blame police for harassment, corruption and bad experiences. However, here a city cop did a commendable job by helping a poor student.
Vidyasagar, a policeman attached to the Devaraja Traffic Police Department here, bought shoes for a college student who was walking barefoot on the road on a rainy day. This display of humanity by a policeman towards a student has been lauded by many.
The constable Vidyasagar, who was on his duty on Sayaji Rao Road last week saw a student walking to college without any shoes. Noticing this, Vidyasagar went to the student and asked him why he was not wearing shoes. The student said that he is a student of Kuvempunagara First Grade College in the City and was unable to purchase a pair of shoes due to his family’s financial constraints.
On hearing the student’s plight, Vidyasagar took the student to a nearby shoe shop and bought him a pair of shoes. This noble gesture by Vidyasagar deservingly has earned him appreciation from his senior officers and the people.
