Apart from enforcing the law and ensuring our safety, the Indian police force has often gone beyond their duty to help those in need. Like, when the UP cops arranged for a young couple to get married in the police station or when Mumbai cops prevented a man from committing suicide.

Speaking of which, recently, two police officers from Kolkata, who are COVID survivors, donated their plasma to save a life in the city. Police constable, Bhaskar Bera and a Kolkata Police driver Pappu Kumar Singh, who have both defeated COVID and recovered completely, stepped forward to donate plasma for the treatment of a corona positive patient.

According to TOI, a 26-year-old media, and public relations executive had made an appeal on social media to save his 58-year-old COVID positive father. As his appeal was shared across various platforms, Kolkata Police officials swung into action to find B+ plasma blood for the patient. The 26-year-old was quoted saying,

“My father is a cancer survivor and his last chemotherapy cycle ended in February. But he was weak. When the virus hit my family, my father was infected along with my 54-year-old mother and me. Only my twin brother tested negative.”

The two warriors in Khaki acted as a savior for the ailing patient as B+ is a rare blood type and cannot be found easily.

Several people applauded the cop’s swift action and thoughtful gesture:

The 58-year-old patient, a resident of Jadavpur, is now under ventilation at a multi-specialty hospital. Kudos, to the officers. We need more cops like them in the force.
