Saving lives to last rites, Delhi cops take care of all | Delhi News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: When Sonu Kumar died of Covid-19, his family members, even his mother and wife, deserted him fearing infection. But assistant sub-inspector Sushil Sharma made sure that all protocols were followed and he was cremated properly.
Sharma, who is posted at Gokulpuri police station of northeast Delhi, had gone to attend to a PCR call when he found Kumar lying dead at home. “His family members, including mother and wife, were present but no one was ready to touch the body in fear of coronavirus,” said DCP Sanjay Sain.
Sharma went to GTB Hospital, arranged a private ambulance and shifted the body to Dr Hedgewar Arogya Hospital around 5.20am. After the autopsy, he took the body to a crematorium in Ashok Nagar where the last rites were performed.
In north Delhi, Covid patients Gurudutt Bhola (67), his wife Gauri (57) and son Karan (25) called up the station house officer of Mukherjee Nagar police station as the last resort when they were gasping for breath at home on Wednesday night. The cops rushed to a Mayapuri plant and got the family three cylinders on that very night.
Senior citizen Neena Sinha at Dwarka Sector 9 also urgently needed a cylinder as her husband’s oxygen saturation fell to a critical level. The beat officer went to her home, collected an empty cylinder, got it refilled in Mundka and delivered it to her flat at 1am. Earlier, nobody in the neighbourhood could help her. The cops also procured Fabiflu strips for a patient late at night.
Another senior citizen, Gurmeet Singh (66) from Kohay Enclave, was sinking when two beat cops arranged a cylinder. In North West district, sub-inspector Naveen & head constable Vijay managed to get oxygen for a patient in Tri Nagar.
Around 1,500 of its own personnel have been infected and Delhi Police has set up three Covid Care Centres for them and their infected family members.
