Traffic SI repairs road with own money, turns good Samaritan
Pathanamthitta: Pathanamthitta Traffic SI Asar Ibin Mir Sahib was high on hopes that the condition of the roads in his locality would get better one day and that the plight of the people would end there.
He had to take things into his own hands when he realised that things were not going to work out as he thought they would.
He decided to repair the roads with the help of CPO Subhash Raj. He rented a JCB and a tipper lorry. He also borrowed a spade and got to work.
He collected two loads of leftover construction material that was left around after highway construction. He closed the ditches on T K Road near Kumbazha one after another. Most of them were almost one meter deep. Asar, along with Subash, filled the ditches with the rocks and other materials that he collected.
The big ditches were covered with the help of the JCB. Almost 200 meters of the road that was prone to accidents have been made usable now. As appreciation started pouring in, the police officer had nothing to say except that it was his duty. The roads starting from Anappara to Kumbazha had been damaged for many months.
