A police official in Faridabad dived into a canal on Wednesday to rescue a 19-year-old woman who had jumped in in an alleged suicide bid.
Around 3 pm on Wednesday, the police received information on helpline 112 that a woman had jumped into a canal from Kheri bridge with the alleged intention to end her life. An emergency response vehicle team, comprising ASI Ramchand, constable Ravinder and constable Sandeep, which was stationed nearby, rushed to the spot.
