The timely action of a police constable saved the life of a seven-year-old boy, who was bitten by a snake, in Badlapur on Monday.
Constable Girish Sahil was on bandobast duty when he saw a man running holding his son’s hand.
Senior inspector of Badlapur police station D Deshmukh said, “Sahil saw the man looking around for a transport. When the constable rushed to them, the man said his son, Shivam Jadhav, was bitten by a snake at a cattle shed near his home in Mankavli.”
Sahil immediately took permission for the senior cop and took both of them to a nearby hospital in the police van. Deshmukh said, “I gave the man money for medical expenses after Sahil reached them to hospital. He was treated and he is recovering.”
