The responsibility of Police is to maintain law and order. I have seen there are pretty much law and order around me, except certain cases when everything goes out of hand.
But there will be days when you will be all alone and you have to use your own presence of mind to get out of a tricky situation.
Apparently, a few days back, this girl, #Neha Agarwal was in an auto when she had to face an unpleasant situation. She showed enormous courage and eventually set an example for others.
Let me narrate the incident that will surely send a shiver down your spine.
Date of incident: 20th July, 2015
Time: 08:00 PM
Location: Jayadeva Circle
It happened yesterday near Jayadeva Circle. I was heading in an Auto towards BTM, while passing the under bridge it felt like someone was behind the back seat of the auto. Light from oncoming vehicles made a metallic kind of flash behind me which made me sure that someone is ducking in the rear space behind the seat and he is holding something in his hand.
I tried my best not to make any quick movements so that I can come up with something to help me escape. At the left turn opposite to Gopalan Mall traffic was moving slow because of rush hour and heavy rain. I took the opportunity to jump out of the auto and hit a car coming from behind as he wouldn’t be suspecting me to. This made people go Honking and grabbed enough attention to the scene. The car was at a minimal speed so I was not hurt. There was a Traffic Police Officer over there who came running as well. I pointed towards the auto which was still stuck in traffic. The policeman took the auto driver out and when I told him he checked behind the back seat and there was a boy holding a knife in his hand. I was startled with fear. He started hitting both of them and then another policeman over there took me to a different auto, checked it first and then asked me to go in it. I was scared and said I’ll walk but he convinced me that I was safe. I then came home.
I am still amazed and scared at the same time. I did not get a chance to thank them at the very moment. So, here is a Big THANK YOU! Bengaluru Traffic Police.
We hardly find media and pop-culture appreciating the good work done by policemen. This is not the case always. We should stop stereotyping policemen because there are times when they protect us with their helping hand.
Kudos to Bengaluru Traffic Police for highlighting such positive stories.
