DCP Aslam Khan of Delhi’s North-West District has set an example for humanity the day she decided to lend a helping hand to the family of a deceased truck driver in Jammu. A 42-year-old truck driver, Sardar Maan Singh, was murdered by a gang of robbers on January 9, 2018, in Jahangirpuri


Robbery Gone Wrong

Reportedly, Singh was from  RS Pura’s Flora village in Jammu and Kashmir, just two kilometres away from the Indo-Pak border. Singh was carrying Rs 80000 that he had saved up for a nephew’s wedding, back to his village. While driving his truck. Singh was attacked by a group of four robbers. Even though Singh put up a good fight, he eventually succumbed to his injuries after being stabbed in the thigh with a knife. Singh’s body was then recovered by the Jahangirpuri Police, with the blood-stained notes still clutched in his hands.

Oblivious to Singh’s sudden demise, the family of five was devastated when word finally reached them. Financial insecurity, coupled with the loss of their beloved had left them in a worrisome state. Little did they know, that a DCP from the country’s capital city, Delhi, would end up becoming a beacon of hope.



DCP Aslam Khan Was Moved By Singh’s Courage

Some 600 kms away, when DCP Aslam Khan was made aware of Singh’s murder case, something about the incident moved her. Speaking to The Logical Indian, Khan said, “I still don’t know how, but Singh’s courageousness moved me, and it was out of sheer intuition that I thought of trying to get in touch with the family of the victim”.

From the very next day, Khan put in active efforts to get in touch with Singh’s family. She said, “I called their relatives and asked for the family’s contact numbers, and when I finally got ahold of his eldest daughter, Baljeet’s number, it was switched off for days”.  After 20 days of relentless efforts, Khan said that she was able to talk to the daughter.


Khan’s Example Of Generosity

Khan was right in assuming that the family might have been in a financial crisis post-Singh’s death. After speaking to Baljeet, Khan found out that he was the sole earning member of the family which comprises two daughters, a son and his wife. Baljeet also told her that the family has been in great financial difficulty owing to the high costs of education of the three children who are still in school.

It was then that Khan had decided to give a part of her monthly salary to the family. She asked Baljeet about her bank account details and from February onwards, started sending money to the family. Khan, who has no plans of stopping this selfless gesture from her part said, “I will keep sending money till the children finish their education at least.”

Khan’s relationship with the family, whom she has not even met, goes well beyond monthly monetary transactions. She said that she is on talking terms with the family and regularly calls to check on them. Baljeet, who has a keen interest in becoming an IPS officer in the future, has been getting support from Khan. So much so that Khan has even offered to help them with shifting to better schools to get quality education.


The Logical Indian Take

For the family, Khan is more than a good Samaritan in the form of an IPS officer. Singh’s case was nothing new to DCP Aslam Khan, but a strong sense of intuition moved her.  The Logical Indian appreciates Khan for going beyond her line of duty in a bid to help a family in need.
