State Director General of Police Loknath Behra has called the civil police officer to congratulate him.
“When I was about to open my food packet I saw a person watching whole proceedings closely. I could make out he is hungry. I asked him whether he had food and he said no. Then I told him to join me. Initially he refused but when I prodded he agreed,” said Sreejith adding it was a casual bonhomie and he ever expected such a response. “It was a casual act and initially I was scared by response it elicited,” he said.
