If a picture could narrate a story, the below is one of them. Amidst violence-hit Karauli in Rajasthan, state police constable demonstrated his valour and presence of mind as he ran with a child through the burning houses around him.
Rajasthan Police Constable Netresh Sharma, 31, has garnered immense praise on social after his picture running with a baby through flames went viral.
Here’s What Sharma Narrated
One of the houses in the area was set on fire during the riots in Karauli on Saturday. Trapped inside, the four-year-old child, his mother and two other women were crying for help. The mother had the baby in her lap. She had wrapped him in a cloth to save him from the flames.
This is when Netresh came across the family, whose house had been set ablaze by a mob. He rushed inside, took the child and rushed out. In the process, also helped three women who were trapped and helped them flee with safety.
After this heroic image went viral, the Rajasthan government and police are also hailing the bold act of the constable. CM Ashok Gehlot spoke to him appreciating his bravery and humanism in risking his life to save others. Speaking with media, Sharma said,
Four lives were about to perish before my eyes. Even if I lost my life, it was my duty to save them at any cost. There was no time to think about what would happen to my own life!
Netresh added how he will never forget the terror on the faces of the child and the women. He said,
When I reached the house, the three women and the child were in a bad condition. I took the child in my lap and told the women that to come after me. I brought to safety about 20 meters away from the burning house and handed the child back to his mother.
This is how twitter was showering their praises on the constable:
