When two elderly people fainted while walking to the hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara in Tirupati, a constable went beyond the call of duty and carried them on his back. An image of Police Special Party constable Sheikh Arshad carrying a 58-year-old Mangi Nageswaramma on his back has gone viral on social media “We were on duty to go to Tirumala. We started our journey from Akepadu and were halfway through on our way when I was informed that an old man and a woman have fainted. I was a little far from the place and rushed to the spot,” Arshad said to the media. “I first picked up the old man and took him near the roadside. I then went back to take the woman and carried her to the same spot,” he added.  Applauding the gesture of this brave and helpful constable, AP police circulated his picture and lauded him.
