Con­sta­ble saves fam­ily from house on fire

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Lucknow -

LUC­KNOW :The heroic ac­tions of a po­lice con­sta­ble saved the life of six mem­bers of a fam­ily who got trapped in a house on fire in Chowk area here on Satur­day.

The con­sta­ble Sunny Sa­harawat broke into the house and res­cued the fam­ily al­most sin­gle­hand­edly.

The 2016 batch con­sta­ble who is posted at Pata Nala po­lice out­post rushed to nearby build­ing fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion about a fire break out.

“There was too much smoke in­side the build­ing that made it im­pos­si­ble to see in­side. Peo­ple were call­ing for help but the gate was closed,” said Sunny who acted quickly and broke the glass win­dow with his bare hands.

He in­jured his hand in the act but en­tered the build­ing and fo­cused on sav­ing the res­i­dents. Later, a team from nearby po­lice sta­tion also rushed to the spot to as­sist Sunny. Fire depart­ment was also alerted.

SP (West) Vikas Chan­dra Tri­pathi com­mended quick ac­tion taken by the con­sta­ble. The of­fi­cer has also rec­om­mended for re­ward­ing Sunny for his brav­ery and an­nounced his name for the best po­lice­man of the month of Chowk po­lice sta­tion.

Mean­while, Sunny terms the act as his duty. “I only did what I was sup­posed to do. I just did my duty,” he said.
