Malappuram, May 28 : Thanks to the intervention of police and extension of a helping hand by a Good Samaritan, a plus-one student could reach his school in an ambulance and appeared for the examination that commenced here on Wednesday. Muhasin, a resident student of Ma’din Academy near here, had been to home as examination was postponed due to nation-wide lockdown. But, as the examination was rescheduled for May 27, Muhasin had to reach his school.
A resident of Edappal near here, the 16-year-old boy made it to nearby Kuttippuram bus stand around 6 a.m. to get his bus to Malappuram. But he could not get a bus, neither a private transport nor the state-owned KSRTC to reach the school. As time ticked away, a worried Muhasin told his plight to a cop on duty at the bus stand who escalated the issue to the Kuttippuram police station. It was already quarter past eight by then though, police acted quickly and contacted Rasheed, driver of an ambulance, who readily agreed to make it to Malappuram. Thanks to Rasheed and the Kuttippuram police, Muhasin reached his school minutes before the commencement of the examination. A free of cost service by Rasheed, the school authorities congratulated him for his voluntary service which enabled Muhasin to write the examination. (UNI)
