Traffic Police controls traffic in rain for two hours without raincoat, umbrella; watch video

Dedication is a trait that is rare but is the driver of anybody’s success story. No objective can be achieved without it. It is therefore not a surprise that the trait is inculcated in the spirits of the men and women in uniform – be it the armed forces or police forces.

An example of this dedication was witnessed on 4 June in Mumbai when heavy rains lashed the Maximum City.

As people ran helter-skelter to find a shelter from the rain, a Mumbai cop stood in the pounding downpour to ensure that traffic, which was moving at a snail’s pace, flows smoothly. The policeman was not wearing a raincoat or an umbrella to protect himself from getting drenched in the rain. Yet he stood at an intersection on Akurli Road in Kandivali East manning the traffic.

The policeman’s dedication was captured by Satyam Yadav, a regular Mumbaikar who was out on that rain-soaked evening. Yadav captured a video of the cop doing his job in the middle of the road without a bother for the rain as everyone around him was trying in a rush to escape the downpour.

Soon, the video went viral and the cop. According to reports, the policeman has been identified as 47-year-old Nandkumar Ingle, who is posted as a traffic constable with Dahisar traffic division.

With the force for the last 23 years, Ingle has been hailed as a hero by social media users.
