These Hyderabad cops are winning hearts and internet! Here's why
A simple gesture of setting right the prayer mats on Eid has brought appreciation for two constables as well as the Hyderabad city police. Citizens are all praises for the constable duo who helped Muslims offering prayers at Eidgah Mir Alam.
The video posted on Hyderabad police Facebook page shows Venkatesh Naik and V Pratap Singh, both constables attached to the Kalapather police station, setting right cardboards used as makeshift mats of those offering prayers at the windy Eidgah. Strong winds were blowing the mats away as prayer was underway.
