Hyderabad traffic cop's act of kindness towards elderly woman wins many hearts
The picture of a Hyderabad traffic policeman feeding an elderly homeless woman has gone viral on social media. The act has won home guard B Gopal much praise from everyone, including the Home Minister, Nayani Narasimha Reddy.
Home guard B Gopal was on duty when he saw a frail-looking elderly woman called Buchamma lying on the roadside, looking exhausted. Gopal was touched by how helpless she looked. He got breakfast for her and fed her.
The Hyderabad Police’s PRO shared a photo of this, which quickly went viral. Many people have praised him, including the Cyberabad Police Commissioner VC Sajjanar.
Gopal said that he had seen Buchamma almost every day, and used to try and talk to her. Five months ago, she was hit by a vehicle and the police had taken her to a hospital.
Buchamma has now been sent to a welfare home. She has been abandoned by her nine children. The police are hoping that one of them will take care of her.
