Hearing about police officers going above and beyond their duty is always heartwarming.

Recently, Mumbai Commissioner of Police, Shri Param Bir Singh took to social media to share one such story of a police constable who came to rescue at a very crucial time and pretty much saved a young girl’s life.

According to a Twitter post, a 14-year-old Mumbai girl urgently needed blood for open-heart surgery. Unfortunately, due to cyclone Nisarga, none of her friends and family could make it in time for the donation. This is when Police Constable Aakash Gaikwad stepped in and donated his blood.

Singh tweeted, “Commitment Level: A+ A 14-year old needed blood group A+ to undergo an open heart surgery. When friends or family could not make it to the hospital due to #CycloneNisarga, PC Aakash Gaikwad donated blood. @MumbaiPolice wishes the young girl a healthy life ahead! #MumbaiFirst”
