A 24-year-old policeman, Manoj Barahate, did not think of his own life before diving off a 20-feet high bridge to save the life of a man who had jumped into the water. Had it not been for this quick thinking brave cop, the man would have lost his life.
The bravery and selflessness of policemen in India is seldom applauded. Their hard work and dedication go easily unnoticed. But every once in a while, we need to step back and acknowledge these unsung heroes who often put their own life in jeopardy on a day-to-day basis in the line of duty.
And this time, it is a young policeman from Maharashtra who deserves kudos for his courageous and quick-thinking response that saved a fellow human being’s life.
Praveen Gedam, IAS officer and Commissioner, Nashik Municipal Corporation, tweeted wrote about Manoj’s bravery bravery on Twitter.
