It’s not every day that you get to see an act of kindness. Well, today is one of those days.
A traffic policeman was praised for giving a ride to a disabled man on his motorcycle. His selfless act was caught on camera and went viral on Facebook, reported local news portal The Star Online.
“A police corporal from the Taman Tun Dr Ismail police station was making his patrol rounds on motorcycle. The policeman willingly gave a ride to a disabled man who lacks both legs and his left hand. The disabled man moves around only with the strength in his right hand and his torso. I was touched to see him. Congratulations Corporal Ropi from the TTDI station who provided help to the needy,” the original Facebook post read. Several photos were attached to the post.
The images were then shared again on the Royal Malaysian Force’s Facebook page and garnered some 2.7 thousand likes in 19 hours. Netizens also left their comments thanking and praising Ropi for not ignoring someone in need.
The cop, only known as Corporal Ropi, allegedly met the disabled man while on patrol along Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad at 8pm on Sunday (29th May).
I was worried that a car might not see him because it was already dark, so I offered to send him to the nearest bus station.
The kind deed did not go unnoticed by the top-ranked policeman in Malaysia, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar. In a tweet attached with photos of the incident, the IGP congratulate PDRM’s Motorcycle Patrol Unit (Unit Rondaan Bermotorsikal/URB) for a job well done.
