Assam Director General of Police (DGP) Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta has rewarded the cop who was seen distributing pens to students outside an examination centre in Sivasagar district.
Appreciating Ratul Gogoi, the policeman’s unique effort to wish good luck to students appearing for their 12th exams, DGP Mahanta announced a reward of Rs 10,000.
In a tweet that he shared on his official Twitter handle, the DGP said, “Shri Ratul Gogoi's kind gesture has made all of us proud and will surely inspire others. It embodies the selfless spirit of service embraced by the @assampolice. To honor his act of kindness, we've decided to felicitate him with a cash award of Rs 10,000.”
It may be mentioned here that Ratul Gogoi, an Assam Police cop (No 1 battalion, Assam Police) serves in Nitaipukhuri Police outpost. A video of Gogoi distributing pens to the students went viral on Thursday and prominent journalist Anupam Bordoloi, posting the video on Twitter, wrote, “An Assam Police jawan Ratul Gogoi has won hearts after he was seen distributing pens as a good luck gesture to students appearing for their class 12 final exams.”
