If police start behaving like this officer , half of crime may come down . Corrective and emotional support in early stage of distress can be a great strength.— Ajay (@ajaydutt) November 25, 2019
Some Twitter users asked the name of the policeman.
What is his name?— Jyeshtha Maitrei (@JMAITREI) November 24, 2019
He is being a good human first and police next. I think we all should keep the identities in that order, always.
"I am moved. I know well that many -- very many -- dedicated men and women are selflessly serving in the Indian Police. They deserve our respect, gratitude and appreciation," a user wrote.
