At the time of crisis where the police department is working round the clock to ensure that the lockdown is fully followed by people and there has been no time to look for anything else, a cop in Hyderabad came out as a hero to help a pregnant woman reach the hospital on time for the delivery of a baby boy.
A constable working at the Marredpally police station shifted a woman to a maternity hospital after the woman called 100 to report the emergency and P Mohan Rao, the constable was on duty at that time. The woman is a resident of West Marredpally and she complained of labor pains and wanted to be shifted to a hospital.
Rao shifted the woman to the hospital in a police patrol vehicle, and after reaching the hospital, a baby boy was delivered. The police said that both, the mother and the newborn baby are healthy and safe. The Commissioner gave a cash reward of Rs 5,000 to the constable along with a memento.
It is well worth noting that it is a situation where people cannot go out by themselves and thus, calling for help is a good step as the police department is always ready to help the people in need, and in cases like these, they would proactively help everyone, and P Mohan Rao was rightly rewarded for his help.
