There are so many stereotypes associated with the profession of police. Movies and televisions image often do more harm than good. Unfortunately, these stereotypes lead to a lot of misperceptions about police officers. The gesture of this policeman will reinforce your belief in the profession. In a small Amroha village of Uttar Pradesh, a Policeman jumped into a filthy sewer to rescue a kid.

Nearby CL Gupta farm in Amroha, a speeding car collided with an auto, consequently damaging it. The nearby villagers started helping the people, and the wounded people were taken to a hospital by an ambulance. Sanjeev Kumar, the chowki in charge in Jiwai police post was passing by when he saw the crowd and ambulance. Intrigued, he halted his vehicle and quickly started helping when suddenly people told him the family that had met with that accident had a 6-year-old girl. Though her parents could come out of the sewer, the little child had got drowned in it. Without any delay, Sanjeev jumped into the sewer, full of harsh chemical waste, to look for the kid.

While he was looking for the girl, few people told him that the couple had already been taken to the hospital but there was actually no child with them. After ensuring that there was no one stuck in the sewer, Sanjeev came out of it. The villagers applauded and appreciated Sanjeev for jumping into the drain where nobody would dare to.

The water in the sewer had a lot of harsh chemicals, industrial waste to be precise. But Sanjeev did not care and jumped into it without thinking twice, and that too just because of misinformation. After coming out, Sanjeev had to bathe several times, but still, he was feeling irritation on his skin. He had to consult a doctor.

Sanjeev told Tarksangat, “in such a situation, your responsibility is to help the affected, and I did what anyone else would have done.” He added,”Though the local media published my story and photograph dubbing me a ‘hero’, but I didn’t do anything of that sort. I was just doing my duty.”

Sanjeev was awarded a sum of Rs 2,000 from the police department. But he feels that there’s nothing more pleasing than helping someone.

The Logical Indian salutes Sanjeev Kumar for the humanity he has shown.
