Setting an example, the Kerala Police came to the help of a distressed 10-year-old boy and his brother and retrieved their cycles which were held by a repair shop.

Abir, a student of Elampilad UP School in Kozhikode district of Kerala had given his and his brother’s cycle to repair at a shop. When the shop did not repair his cycle even after two months, the boy decided to approach the Meppayur police station for help. The Kerala Police not only resolved the issue but also took to Facebook to appreciate the boy for placing his trust in the police.

In the letter dated November 25 and written on a notebook paper, Abir wrote that he and his brother had given the cycle for repairs on September 5.

“They had taken Rs 200 as advance. Whenever we call, they don’t pick up or say that they will repair. When we go to the shop, it is closed,” says the letter which was written in Malayalam.

“There is no one else at home to enquire. Hence, sir, please recover it for us,” added the class 5 boy.

Upon inquiry, the police found that the request was legitimate and decided to inquire. “Janmaithri police took Abir’s complaint without losing its seriousness,” says the Facebook post shared by Kerala Police on November 28.

Beat officer Radhika NP further went to the repair shop to probe the matter. Upon questioning, the shop owner claimed that he was sick and caught up with his son’s marriage and hence couldn’t open the shop. However, he repaired the cycles and returned it to the boys. The police also shared an image of the boys with the repaired cycles.

“As soon as the complaint was received, the officer filed it and assigned me. I, along with Abir, went to the repair shop and talked to the mechanic. Since he was having some illness, he promised to repair the cycles by Thursday. They got the cycles back. Later, the school organised an event to congratulate him. He showed his trust in the police and we didn’t take it lightly,” Radhika was quoted by The News Minute.
