"As we helplessly stood in front of the hotel where we had our dinner, we saw a traffic police vehicle go past. I ran up the vehicle in the rain and asked them to help us find a ride. To be honest we were extremely doubtful of any help coming our way, but you proved us wrong. Your team actually sent an auto to pick us up !" she wrote.
She added, "But you guys and the auto driver were the real heroes (sic) of last night. I can't tell you how reassured we were to know that when in need, we can count on you guys !.

Last week, two Bengaluru traffic cops were lauded for allowing an ambulance on a road which was cordoned off for the President's convoy. Sub inspector ML Nijalingappa and constable Vishwanath Rao were on duty at Trinity Circle for President Pranab Mukherjee's convoy to pass when they spotted an ambulance approaching from the other end, but with no time to get permission from a senior officer, they made the quick decision of letting the ambulance move through, which many praised on social media.
