Police Man: A Brave One

new-picture-2.png      THERE WERE over 50 passengers in the Meerut-Delhi DTC bus in which the robbery took place.

      Only two people chose to take on the armed robbers. While bus conductor Preetam Singh was shot at and killed on the spot, constable Ramesh Chand Verma is being treated at hospital.

     According to the eyewitnesses, Verma not only raised his voice but also held one of the robbers by his waist. Finding his partner in crime in distress, the other robber shot at Verma. The bullet entered his body just below the waist, made its way through the left kidney and stopped just below the heart.

     Posted at Civil Lines police station in Meerut, Verma was coming back to his Nand Gram residence in Ghaziabad after doing double shift.

     “He is one of the honest policemen in service. Verma has the habit of doing his level best to help out people in distress. That is why he took on the robbers to help the jeweller,” said Krishna Kumar Tyagi, his colleague.

      According to doctors at Yashoda Hospital, Verma has already been operated upon and has been kept under 48hour observation. “We have removed his left kidney and spleen.

      He has been kept under observation,” said a doctor attending on him. atulmathur@hindustantimes.com
