These children are terminally ill patients, who took charge as the city police chiefs in Rao’s presence at his office, wanted to be cops but their diseases may not let them survive for long to realise their dream.
“All are suffering from serious diseases. They are too small. I thought we should make them and their parents happy at least for a day”, Rao said.
