JHARSUGUDA: Recognizing his role in saving precious human lives, Jharsuguda police administration on Saturday felicitated an auto driver who extends immediate help in shifting road accident victims to the hospital.

“Being an auto driver by profession, he has set an example for others, by helping accident victims, he doesn’t wait for anyone rather he himself voluntarily comes forward in saving the valuable lives. Till now he has saved two precious lives. Seeing this, Jharsuguda S.P. has given a cash award and our police department have felicitated him. We also request others also to come forward in helping the accident victim.” Jharsuguda SDPO KC Acharya
“On 14th December 2017, a 60-year-old man, identified as Gosain Ghosh was hit by a bus at Jharsuguda Bus stand when the bus driver was reversing his bus without noticing the old man behind the bus. After the accident, a huge public had gathered as a mere spectator but no one had come up to shift the injured. Rupachand Khatik, who was present nearby with his auto had immediately come and along with two others managed to take the injured and had admitted to the Jharsuguda Dist. Headquarter Hospital, Mangal Bazaar. Earlier also this auto driver had to save life’s of two by helping them and shifting the injured to Jharsuguda Dist. Headquarter Hospital”, he added
“I feel very proud to have assisted the accident victims and managed to save lives. I want to appeal through you to all our auto drivers brothers and other peoples also that if they come across any accident victims then please immediately take them to nearest Hospital without having any fear of the legal compliance after that,” said Rupachand Khatik
