How 2 Alert Hyderabad Cops Saved a 22-Year-Old Girl From Suicide

But between 2:30 – 3 PM, they suddenly spotted a girl who stood on the divider in the middle of the road. She was attempting to commit suicide by jumping in front of a speeding vehicle.

It was a usual day for Hyderabad police constables Narsing Rao and DA Kumar, as they were on patrolling duty near Langar Houz flyover on Sunday.

But between 2:30 – 3 PM, they suddenly spotted a girl who stood on the divider in the middle of the road.

She was attempting to commit suicide by jumping in front of a speeding vehicle.

Speaking to the Times of India, constable Narsing Rao said, “We were patrolling on the main road. We saw the girl crying on the divider. The stretch is very dangerous as it is near the flyover and vehicles keep speeding.”

Jumping into action, the two cops first took the crying girl away from the main road and sat her down.

Originally hailing from the Khammam district, the girl was a student in a city college, she said. When they asked her the reason for the drastic step, she confessed that she wanted to marry her boyfriend, but parents on either side did not approve of their relationship.

“Frustrated with the situation, she wanted to end her life,” the constable said.

By this time crowds of curious pedestrians had also begun to gather. But it did not deter the policemen from their mission to convince the girl not to give up. They counselled her for over two hours.

“We asked her to think about her parents. We gave her coconut water as she was exhausted. Her eyes were red with crying. We asked her not to take any extreme steps without thinking about her family,” Narsing Rao told the Times of India.

The cops’ attempt of going beyond their call of duty to help the 22-year-old was a success when she decided to changed her mind, thanked them for intervening at the right time and left for her hostel.
