Here’s a situation most of us would dread to find ourselves in – getting our luggage lost in the airport. Most times, it leaves you in a state of panic. And it was no different for Twitter user Anubhav K Sharma, who lost his luggage at the Indira Gandhi Airport in New Delhi.
Except he was one of the lucky ones. Having seen his predicament, a CISF officer stepped in and helped the young man till the very end, until he was able to walk away from the airport with his luggage intact!
Anubhav took to his Twitter account to post about the officer, Sunil Kumar, who went above and beyond his duty to help someone in need.
After noticing that Anubhav was frantically looking for his suitcase, the officer, despite having just finished his shift, decided to help. When asked why he was helping him in the first place, the officer had a simple yet noble reply – Yeh duty hai meri (this is my duty). For his part, Anubhav has noted through his Twitter account that he has already written a letter of appreciation to Anil Kumar’s superiors for all his help.

Here’s hoping the next time one of us loses our luggage, we run into someone like CISF officer Anil Kumar who is always ready to help!
