We are living in times of normal people being scared of approaching a policeman. People in modern society are absolutely scared of police brutality and kind of have a bad opinion about expecting any help from the cops. But, this cop from Rajasthan has proved everyone wrong. This Rajasthani constable ventured to rescue a child trapped in a fire accident. Undaunted, he ran into the place burning to the ground and rescued the child. Sukirti Madhava Mishra, an IPS officer from Shamili, shared the footage on Twitter. Those visuals are currently going viral on the internet. Netizens are showering praise on the constable.
On April 2, clashes erupted in the Karauli area of Rajasthan. A bike rally was organized to mark the Hindu New Year, the riders were stoned by some unidentified persons. This led to clashes between the two communities. Some shops and vehicles were set on fire during the riots. The child was trapped in the fire. Noticing this, Constable Netresh Sharma rushed to the spot to rescue the child. He ran through the narrow lanes and saved the life of the child at a quick pace.
IPS officer Sukirti Madhava Mishra shared the scene on Twitter. “Proud of Rajasthan Police Netresh Sharma who saved a precious life. This single photograph reflects something that cannot be described in words,” he said on Twitter. In this context, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gahlot spoke to Netresh. The courage to save the child was appreciated over the phone.
"तम में प्रकाश हूँ,
कठिन वक़्त की आस हूँ।"

Constable Netresh Sharma said, “Someone threw stones at me during the rally. Then two wounded men appeared on the road. When they requested to be taken to the hospital, I cooperated with them. It was during that time, that the shops caught fire. I realized that there was a house between the two shops. In that house, the women were trapped with a toddler in hand. I immediately ran to them. As soon as they saw me they requested to be rescued. I took the baby and told them to come after me. So I brought the baby out and handed it to them. This is just my responsibility,” said Netresh Sharma in a humble manner.
The government, on the other hand, has imposed a curfew in the Karauli area to quell the unrest. They partially restricted internet services. Police have arrested more than 50 suspects so far.
