CHANDIGARH: Touched by the sensitivity shown by a cop of Punjab Police, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Traffic Amardeep Singh Rai on Monday honoured the Head Constable (HC) Palwinder Singh for saving the life of a street dog, whose head was stuck in the fog-lamp hole of a car bumper. HC Palwinder Singh is currently posted at Police Station Mohkampura in Amritsar Commissionerate.

In a viral video, HC Palwinder was seen successfully pulling out the head of a stray dog and saving his life.

ADGP Amardeep Singh Rai, while handing over the Commendation Certificate (Class-1) to HC Palwinder Singh, said that his compassionate act will no doubt inspire others to lend a hand when they see any animal in distress.

HC Palwinder Singh said that when he was leaving home at 6 am, his friend told him about the dog’s neck got stuck in the car bumper. “I immediately went to help the dog, who was writhing in pain and I softly pulled out his neck,” he said. He said that the dog had got minor injuries on his neck.

He thanked the ADGP Traffic for recognising his deed and ensured that he will continue to work for noble causes in the future as well.
