Cops adopt HIV-positive boy

Jan 13, 2007 01:08 PM IST India India

Akola, Vidarbha (Maharashtra): Men in uniform don't always lathicharge. They also cut marble paper to help kids build a playhouse. At the police station at Akola, policemen have taken up the responsibility of caring for a few children, one of them HIV-positive. “We policemen contribute some money to buy them medicines,” said a constable, Anil Topkar. Eleven-year-old Ajay and his 14-year-old brother Sagar look completely at home at the police station. The policemen have taken up the responsibility of Ajay's treatment, who is HIV-positive. “The young boy is HIV-positive. We're doing it for the sake of humanity. I hope God listens to our prayers,” said another constable, Umrao Khan. “We have no home and no relatives. Now this police station is our home and policemen, our relatives,” said Ajay’s elder brother, Sagar. Commonly looked upon as hard-hearted people, the policemen in Akola are set to write a different story, bringing a smile on the faces of children.
