Hyderabad: As a gesture of communal harmony, two constables of Kalapathar police station, R. Venkatesh Naik and V. Pratap Singh were given a cash award of Rs. 5000 by Congress.
According to the reports, on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, these constables had put their caps on the papers which were placed for offering ‘namaz’ to stop them from flying.
Although, the rules don’t permit police constables on duty to take off their caps but these constables did so to show their respects for Muslims.
Mr. Jana Reddy, Congress Leader of Opposition in Assembly and Mr. Mohammed Ali Shabbir, Congress Leader of Opposition in TS Legislative Council appreciated the gesture shown by these constables. They also thanked Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mahender Reddy and his team which made excellent arrangements at Eidgah Meer Alam on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.
