In a heart-warming gesture, CRPF personnel saved the life of a villager by carrying him on a "charpai" from his village to the hospital. The villager was injured after he fell from a tractor.
Commandant of 204 Cobra battalion of CRPF, Prem Kumar said, "At around 3 pm on Friday, a team was patrolling the Burgicheru area under Deputy-Commandant Kameshwar Sahu. When the patrol team was passing through a village, they saw some people crying in a home. When inquired, they were informed that a young boy named Andu was crying in pain after falling from a tractor."
