The cop has been identified as Mithun Das, who stood his ground in the rain at the Basistha traffic intersection.
“My duty hours were from 7 am to 12 pm. The storm started around 5 minutes before noon, but since my replacement hadn’t come, I continued my job in the rain for nearly 20 minutes,” Das said in an interview to Hindustan Times.
“It could be a bit scary with the heavy rain, wind and lightning to stand on an uncovered podium. But for us duty comes first," he further added.
After the video was posted, Twitter started hailing the cop for his dedication to continuing duty through the storm.
