On 26 April, in Rohini, Delhi, a Delhi Police team here fired several shots in retaliation to an attack by two burglars. This happened around 4 AM, and the firing left one of the burglars wounded while the other managed to escape.
The policemen rushed the injured miscreant to a nearby hospital, where they not only took his care but also donated blood to him.
Previously, a few residents of the area alerted the police control room about two suspicious-looking men roaming nearby. When the police arrived, the two men tried to escape by scaling a boundary wall.
The burglars have been identified as Nitin and Salman.
The police team comprised of assistant sub-inspector Ramashray Singh, head constable Rajesh Kumar, and constable Ashok.
One of the miscreants, Nitin, fired at the police. When the police fired back, five bullets hit Nitin, who fell to the ground, while Salman managed to escape.
The police rushed Nitin to Ambedkar Hospital, where doctors operated on him to remove the bullets from his body. The doctors told the police officials that Nitin would survive but needed three to four units of blood.
The police officials agreed to donate blood to save Nitin’s life. All three of them donated blood to save Nitin’s life.
According to Hindustan Times, constable Ashok Kumar often donates blood to old people and road-accident victims, but never before to a suspect he had shot at.
“Shooting at the criminal was my duty. I am performing my humanitarian duty now,” he said.
Doctors say that Nitin is out of danger and will survive. Meanwhile, the police are searching for Nitin’s accomplice, Salman, who is still absconding.
The Logical Indian community appreciates the concern and responsibility displayed by the Delhi police officials. They donated their blood in the early hours of the morning to a burglar; this shows both selflessness and leadership.
