Dehradun: A video purportedly showing a Sikh policeman saving a Muslim youth from a mob in Nainital district, has gone viral.

A report in The Tribune (TT) notes that ADG (law and order) Ashok Kumar said the incident occurred on Tuesday (22 May) when a Muslim youth went to meet his girlfriend, a Hindu, at Garjia Devi temple about 15 km from Ramnagar. “Locals somehow came to know about it and reached the temple to “teach the duo a lesson”, he said.

On being informed about a trouble in the area, Sub-Inspector Gagandeep Singh rushed to the spot where he found a mob preparing to attack.

He immediately rushed to their rescue drawing the Muslim youth close to him to act as a shield to him, and in the process taking several blows from the mob on himself, the ADG said, adding that the mob was dispersed and the couple was taken to a police station from where they were sent back to their families.

Five people, whose faces are visible in the clip, have been booked and a search is on to nab them. A reward of Rs 2,500 has been announced for Gagandeep Singh for his act of bravery, media reports quote AGP.
