In a heartwarming development reported from Indore, MP, personnel of the city police pooled enough money to buy a motorcycle for a food delivery agent after seeing him deliver food on bicycle one night in the city.

According to reports, while on patrol, some officials of the Indore police saw the food delivery executive Jay Halde sweating profusely as he drove his bicycle fast to complete a food delivery. On seeing the man’s dedication towards his job, Vijay Nagar police station in-charge Tehzeeb Qazi spoke with the 22-year-old food delivery agent and got to know more about his trials and tribulations.

Jay told the police that he is facing several financial troubles and hence, doesn’t have enough resources to buy a motorcycle. Following their conversation with Jay, personnel of the Vijay Nagar police station decided to pool enough money to make an initial payment at a motorcycle showroom.

The police gifted a motorcycle to Jay, and showed how humanity transcends religion, caste, gender or any other social constructs.

Earlier last month, generous netizens on Twitter joined forces to raise money and buy a motorcycle for a Zomato delivery partner who had lost his job due to pandemic and had to deliver food parcels via bicycle.

The Facts of the Matter

As intense heat-wave continues to tighten its grip around nation, many people across the nation continue to work under scorching sun to make ends meet. Traffic cops, delivery agents, street vendors, continue to toil in the Indian summers to do their job. In such situations, some kind gestures and actions go a long way.

Indore Police Sets Example

Some officials from Indore Police epitomized the notion after it pooled enough money to buy a motorcycle for a food delivery agent. The 22-year-old food delivery agent has been identified as Jay Halde, who was seen on a bicycle delivering food.
