Guwahati: On Sunday afternoon, when the sky opened up, residents across Guwahati ran helter-skelter for cover. But one unfamiliar sight at Basistha area of the city caught everyone’s attention.
Constable Mithun Das showed exceptional devotion to duty when he went about his business not giving two hoots to the inclement weather. The act was captured and shared on social media by a local resident, Banajeet Deka, after which it went viral.
Posting the video on Twitter, Assam police tweeted: “Dedication is thy name!
