Ever Been Stranded on a Delhi Street Post Midnight? This Girl Was. And Then 2 Cops Came Along!

It is every person’s nightmare – to be stuck somewhere in the middle of the night with no access to any immediate form of transportation back to safety. Especially for women, such a scenario can feel all the more dangerous.

This was the predicament that Delhi-based Priyanka Kamboj found herself in when her car broke down at 1.30 am due to a flat tyre. Even though she tried reaching out to a number of car service stations nearby, all of them either turned her down or tried exhorting her with exorbitant rates.

But that’s when Delhi’s ASI Om Prakash and ASI Daya Kishan came rolling in to rescue. They had been driving around the city in a Police Control Room Van and spotted her standing alone next to her car.

Not only did they immediately help fix her tyre, they also made sure she reached home safely once her car was fixed.

In the immediate aftermath, Priyanka took to Facebook to narrate her tale while also expressing her gratitude to the law enforcement officers. She said their actions actually restored her faith in humanity.

I was stuck on road at 1.30 am – tried calling various car services but instead of helping they asked for double/triple the amount. I was still willing to pay but then I saw this PCR stopping by, asking us what was wrong and they specially stopped and helped us changing the tyre. Thank you so much ASI Om Prakash & ASI Daya Kishan – Police Station -Pul Prahalad Pur. Not only they helped us change the Tyre but made sure we reached home safely. Rebuilding faith in humanity! #DelhiPolice #ThankYou Delhi Police
