The UP police turned hero by saving the life of biker who was travelling with his wife and children on Agra Expressway. A video is going viral on social media where a speeding bike catches fire and, after chasing the biker for 4 kms, police avoids a major accident in waiting. The video was shot from a mobile Police Control Room (PCR) van on Agra Expressway. The 2.20-minute viral clip shows the police van chasing the bike in order to warn the unaware rider about the fire.
Initially, the cops are alerted by a burning smell on the highway and can be heard wondering where was it coming from. Soon, they spot the burning bike ahead of them and start the chase. However, the rider is completely unaware of the situation and pays no heed to the emergency hooter being used to warn him. Eventually, the van overtakes the bike and makes them stop.
The cops can be seen removing burning plastic bags from the back of the bike and rushing with a fire extinguisher.
As soon as the video was out, social media users and even DGP of UP lauded the bravery of the cops. DGP also announced that they will be awarded with the DGP Commendation Disc. “The policemen have displayed exemplary professional commitment and outstanding conduct to avert a disaster. I announce my commendation disc to all the police personnel of UP100 PRV 1617,” he tweeted.
