More often than not we have concluded that humanity is a thing of the bygones because all that people today care for are themselves. It’s true — we have come across situations when we see somebody hit by a speeding vehicle and lying helplessly on a busy road, and we just go past, without bothering to offer aid. But then, it is also not true that humanity in itself doesn’t exist anymore. It does, and the Mumbai Police have often proved themselves to be an example of compassion and kindness. This time, a Sakinaka police constable dissuaded a man from ending his life. The man was depressed that he hadn’t got his salary yet.
This act by the police constable earned him a lot of appreciation and praise from social media, especially the Twitter users. According to a Hindustan Times report, 29-year-old Suhas Nevase with sub-inspector Mhatre rushed to a hilltop in Andheri East’s Sangharsh Nagar, after they received a distress call about the man trying to end his life. Nevase then reportedly climbed the hill, reached the man, negotiated with him for about half an hour before convincing him to come down.
The Mumbai Police Twitter handle tweeted about the official’s act of bravery on December 2 after they received a video clip of the act from a local resident. The video which was uploaded on YouTube shows the constable slowly climbing the hill to talk to the distressed man.
