Amid a heavy thundershower that hit the Assam last evening, a traffic constable was seen standing and performing his duty with exemplary dedication. Even though it was raining cats and dogs, Mithun Das, a traffic cop was seen standing in the Basistha area in the capital city and controlling the busy traffic without a raincoat. Assam Police, on their official twitter handle, tweeted a video and various photos of Mithun facing the thunder.
“We salute AB Constable Mithun Das (Basistha PS) of @GuwahatiPol, for his exceptional devotion towards duty and showing us how dedication can turn a storm into a sprinkle. Kudos!”, the caption read.
Dedication is thy name!

He is duty minded and my sincere wishes to him. Instead of only appreciating him, I request police department to provide suitable wear for these bravados else they will have health issues sooner or later.
