The video, which was shot by a passerby, showed Das standing at a busy intersection during rain without cover or a raincoat. While many praised the cop for his dedication, others expressed dismay over lack of infrastructure and protective gear for the policemen to prevent them during bad weather.
Kudos!! But sir/madam pls offer a shade over t traffics point for him or any other policeman to not be at risk of lightning and thunder during such weather. It would be t apt way to show recognition for such exceptional dedication! @real_ziaulislam @GuwahatiPol
