Mumbai, Nov 9 (PTI) Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on Monday hailed and felicitated a traffic policeman for 'discharging duty risking life' a few days after the latter was dragged on the bonnet of a car while trying to stop its driver for not wearing a mask.
Traffic constable Abasaheb Sawant was last Thursday dragged on the car bonnet for almost one kilometre on a busy road in Chinchwad area near Pune.
'I am proud of traffic policemen like Aba Sawant who discharged duty risking life,' Deshmukh, who felicitated him with a shawl and bouquet, said in a statement.
Pimpri-Chinchwad Police Commissioner Krishna Prakash has given a cash reward of Rs 10,000 to Sawant, the minister informed. PTI ENM BNM BNM
