A user said that they are proud of all hardworking servants, but policemen should be provided “non-hazardous environment” while discharging their duties.
When the COVID-19 lockdown was imposed after the outbreak of the coronavirus, police in various states of the country went beyond the line of their duty and distributed food and essential items to those in need.
After the nationwide lockdown, business activities came to a grinding halt and a huge number of migrants started walking towards their villages. In such a case, some policemen helped those migrants in whichever way they could.
