Nalgonda: Inspired and moved by the services being rendered by policemen in Nalgonda district during the lockdown, a five-year-old son of an NRI hailing from the district and residing in Canada, has sent Rs 10,000 to a police constable, who is his father’s friend, to use it to feed the poor.

Narayandas Abhiram, son of Sri Hari, who lives in Canada with his family, came to know about how Md Hafeez, member of an anti-bomb squad, and his colleagues have been distributing food to the poor during the lockdown. Md Hafeez is Sri Hari’s friend. Abhiram sent Rs 10,000 from his pocket money to Hafeez through Google Pay and asked him to spend the money to feed the poor.

In a video recording sent to Hafeez through WhatsApp, Abhiram said his father’s friend Hafeez was supplying food to poor people during the lockdown, and that he wished to support him by sending money saved from his pocket money.

When the matter was posted on the Twitter handle of Nalgonda Police, Director General Police Mahender Reddy commented: “Dear Abhiram, your speech conveyed little, but your holding breath for a second has conveyed many. Inspired by police services, donated his pocket money to Nalgonda police to spend it to feed the poor and appealed everyone to support front line warriors in fight against COVID-19.”
