We are attracted to tales of bravery, courage, and heroism. We read about them in books, comics and on social media. But not every brave act is confined to books or comics. This has been proved by Police Constable Bheem Rao who rescued twenty people stuck inside a multi-storied residential building in Masab Tank area of Hyderabad that caught fire on Monday.

Constable Bheem Rao was on duty in a lane near the building when he was notified by the locals who saw flames coming out of a flat from the first floor of the five-storey structure. He immediately rushed to the spot and realised that the fire had reached the second floor too.

“He barged into the building and helped 20 people who were stuck there including women, children and old people and they safely came down to the ground floor,” says S Ravinder, Station House Officer (SHO) of Humayun Nagar, as reported by The Financial Express.

“When the fire broke out, people on higher floors started to move upstairs instead escaping and coming down. I had to go and bring them down safely,” says Bheem Rao, as reported by The Times of India.

He says that as he went inside the building he heard people scream. He started pulling them out and carried them downstairs safely.

The Corporator of the area, Ayesha Rubina said that fortunately, Bheema moved the gas cylinders in the kitchen, and by doing this, he saved more lives of the people living in the adjacent building.

The SHO said that the fire was alerted and reported at 11:30 AM and was extinguished in thirty minutes.

An electrical short-circuit is said to be the cause of the blaze.

Bheema Rao joined the police force in 2009 and was transferred to Humayun Nagar Police station from Chatrinaka. His courageous and brave act has been praised by the residents and the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K Tarak Rama Rao. The minister tweeted about his act and urged DGP Anurag Sharma to recognise and acknowledge it.

The Logical Indian salutes the spirit shown by Bheem Rao whose brave step saved lives of many.
