A video of a cop from the Indian state of Punjab, pacifying the wailing mother of a youth who is currently in a Malaysian jail, has gone viral on social media.
The clip has melted hearts as the officer was filmed wiping the tears of the woman with what has widely been perceived as "utmost sensitivity".
The woman, who talked to her son Kamal in Malaysia four months ago, was telling the policeman that her child was imprisoned in Malaysia.
The officer tells her that he is like her son and he would make every effort to bring him back, while asking the lady to keep faith in god.
This Police Constable should be the ultimate role model for the police. Look at the deep sense of sensitivity and empathy with which he listens to and wipes the tears of this elderly citizen. @PunjabPoliceInd @BPRDIndia pic.twitter.com/aBsbnr1wor— Indian Police Foundation (@IPF_ORG) November 23, 2019
