The Heartwarming Tale of How SSB Police Officers Helped Save the Life of a Civilian

The Heartwarming Tale of How SSB Police Officers Helped Save the Life of a Civilian

The Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) Police is one of five Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) in India. They perform a gruelling yet significant task – guarding the Indo-Tibetan border. Over the years, the SSB has seen immense success in the area.

But guarding the border is not the only thing they do – they also give the occasional helping hand to civilians in need. In one such incident, troops of the SSB helped save the life of a villager from the Palau Sonapur Village.

Not only did they save his life, they pooled together money to pay for his treatment as well.

According to officials, a woman approached the paramilitary unit seeking help from the officers, saying her husband K Narzary was seriously ill. The post in charge, Sub-inspector Sunil Kumar immediately informed his troops of the situation.

Without further ado, the SSB unit wired a request for an ambulance from Amteka village, which is about 8 kms away.

Meanwhile, the jawans pooled in Rs 11,000 and gave it to Mr Narzary’s  wife for covering any possible medical costs.

Soon after that Narzary was transported to a hospital in Bongaigaon, Lower Assam. Apart from the jawans, several locals came forward and offered their help too.
