The touching gesture from the police is being lauded widely on social media. Police in Assam were deployed at an examination centre and worked beyond their call of duty only to take care of babies while mothers were taking Teachers’ Eligibility Test (TET). We might have also seen the picture on social media depicting police cradling the baby in arms.
The TET examination happened in Assam on November 10 and it is conducted in order to test the basic aptitude to become a teacher. The selected candidates then teach students from Class I to VIII. The examination has 2 sets, one is for teachers applying to teach the junior classes of 1 to 5. The second set is for those who are going to teach the students of classes- VI to VIII.
Police took to Twitter to share a picture of two cops taking care of two infants while their mothers were writing the exam in Assam’s Darrang district. The image is captioned, ‘Mother is a verb. It’s something you do, not just who you are!’
A year ago, in Telangana, police offer took care of a six-month-old baby while his mother was writing the exam. The five constables who belong to the Mahankali Police Station in Hyderabad on Saturday were attending to the infant, while the mother attended the competitive exam without any fuss.
The woman reached at Parsi School in Secunderabad to take the exam and was accompanied by her mother in a bid to take care of her baby for the time being. However, the elderly lady had some difficulty in controlling the baby as the latter was crying constantly. She tried her best to console the crying baby and then came the constables Vara Prasad, Diwakar, Yellaiah, Sudheer and Dinesh to the spot to help the grandmother.
“We appreciated our constables for their humane gesture. We have recommended them for rewards which include an appreciation letter,” Mahankali Police Inspector, Varla Jayapal Reddy said.
In the previous incident, a constable rushed to the spot to console the crying baby while the mother took the cadet exam. IPS Officer Rema Rajeshwari also took to Twitter to praise the constable for his humane act.
“Head Constable Officer Mujeeb-ur-Rehman (of Moosapet PS) who was on duty for conducting SCTPC exam in Boys Junior College, Mahbubnagar trying to console a crying baby, whose mother was writing exam inside the hall,” she wrote.
