Cops arrange auto for stranded woman, win accolades

The Bengaluru city police lent a helping hand to a woman who was stuck in Indiranagar with a friend without any vehicles to return home. The police arranged an autorickshaw and sent the duo safely to their destination.

Aparna Vinod, a resident of Hennur, was stuck in Indiranagar for over an hour with a friend as she could not get any vehicle to reach home.

She tried to book cabs, but her efforts went in vain due to heavy rain. The incident is said to have happened in the last week of May.

She narrated the incident on her Facebook page: “As we helplessly stood in front of the hotel where we had our dinner, we saw a traffic police vehicle go past. I ran upto the vehicle in the rain and asked them to help us find a ride. To be honest we were extremely doubtful of any help coming our way, but you proved us wrong. Your team actually sent an auto to pick us up !”

She stated that she was about 10 kilometres away from her house and the autorickshaw driver did not over charge. “But you guys and the auto driver were the real heroes (sic) of last night. I can’t tell you how reassured we were to know that when in need, we can count on you guys !” she wrote.

She expressed displeasure over online aggregators and said: “If not for the cops that day, I wonder how I would have gotten home.”

Bengaluru Police Commissioner Praveen Sood shared a screenshot of what Aparna has written and tweeted it.
