As Valentine's week is going on and today it is Teddy Day, Pune police in a recent tweet whished netizens and also informed them that they kept their promise of gifting a Twitter user a helmet. The Pune police gifted the person, identified as Tejas Yeotekar, a helmet as in a tweet he requested the authorities not to catch him if found driving without one. He further said that he had slipped from his bike and being a college student he can't afford the helmet as he finished his allowance.
