Who says Police is not trustworthy? Who says that there is no use going to the police? Who says the word corrupt for them?? Who says that they are not capable of helping people?
Andaman Police proved everything wrong.
My husbands grandfather, an 85 year old pensioner lost his ATM card in the busy market of Port Blair. And to his bad luck he had written the atm pin on the cover ( as an 85 year old will not be able to remember and hence found it easy to write on the ATM card cover and was confident enough that he wont lose it whatsoever) But it was not a good day for him..We did not notice till the time we stopped near the ATM to withdraw cash and saw that there was no ATM card in the pocket. We thought of driving home immediately and calling the bank to block the card. Within 20 to 25 mins we reached home and called the customer care to immediately block the ATM card but till that time the man who got the atm card in the market withdrew 40,000 from the account. My husband immediately dialed 100 to seek help from police. Police was completely co operative and assured that within few days they would find the man and the money and handover to dadaji.
On the other hand dadaji was so worried and why not….when we lose a 100 or a 500 or 1000 we get so worried and it was the matter of 40,000 and that too his pension and that too at the age of 85. It was an amount of his collection kept for his grandchildren.. Their marriages, their birthdays, anniversaries, birthdays of their kids.It was a blessing from the eldest member of the family.☺
And the Police had understood this very well. They put their best foot forward and had put all the effort. They requested the bank to show the cctv footage of the ATM from where the money was withdrawn and then found the man with a helmet withdrawing money from dadajis card. and then the next day they circulated the picture and caught the man.. within 5 days police was able to find the man and recovered the money too.
They were Hero for us.
Dadajis happiness knew no bounds and the smile which was lost returned back on his lips.. He went to the police station with my husband and appreciated the police.. he was soo happy that he offered the police to keep 5000 for their excellent work….but they smilingly took only the blessings from dadaji and not taking the money and saying… IT WAS THEIR DUTY.. YE TOH HUMARA KAAM HAI.. HUMARA FARZ ..HUMARA KARTAVYA HAI… ☺
PROUD OF OUR POLICEMEN… PROUD OF ANDAMAN POLICE… KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK…
