A video, shared by a Twitter user, showing a cop going beyond his usual scope of duty to make life easier for commuters is creating quite a buzz among people. Though it’s unknown when the video was captured, a BMTC bus in the clip shows that it was recorded somewhere in Bengaluru, Karnataka.

The clip shows the cop standing at the side of a waterlogged road. Within seconds, he tries to direct the flow of the stagnant water towards a drain opening using a shovel. Eventually, his effort pays off as the water slowly starts receding.

The Commissioner of Police, Bengaluru City, also commented on the video. He tweeted:

Shared a few hours back, the video has already amassed more than 35,000 views – and still counting. Other than that, it has also gathered about 2,000 likes.

People couldn’t stop applauding the cop’s gesture and many dropped comments praising him.

However, there were some who pointed out that he shouldn’t have to do it as Bengaluru’s civic body should have taken proper care of the drainage system.
