Good people finally exist on earth. To prove that, A Kolkata Police sergeant, Chaitanya Mallick, helped a Madhyamik examinee take her exam after she forgot her admit card at home. The sergeant travelled 5.5km distance to Suman Kurrey’s, home to get the admit card.
After reaching her examination centre at 11.40 am on Monday, Kurrey reached her exam centre Jaiswal Bidyamandir for Girls, just five minutes before distribution of exam papers was carried out.
She was then asked by the invigilator to show admit card before permitting her to enter in the centre as she could not show her admit card.
As the girl was on the verge of tears, cops on guard at the centre intervened. Information of the same was relayed to the Ultadanga traffic guard with a plea to help her out.
“Sergeant Mallick of Ultadanga traffic guard got information that a student was stopped from entering the exam centre, located on Vivekanda Road as she was unable to show her admit card. Mallick rushed to help the student.
The sergeant’s first task was to ensure the girl wrote her exam and not panic. He took the candidate before the chief invigilator and pleaded that she be allowed to sit in the exam. He promised to bring back the admit card himself. The invigilator agreed.
“Without wasting time, Mallick contacted the candidate’s mother and reached her residence at South Tangra Road located 5.5km away. He then brought back Kurrey’s admit card and handed it over to the candidate at 12.10 pm, barely 10 minutes into the exam. We are pleased that we could help out the student,” said DC Kumar.
Earlier, traffic sergeants were also seen rushing all the way from Thakurpukur’s PK Brahmachari Vidyapith to a girl’s residence located 4km away after the Madhyamik candidate forgot her admit card and registration certificate. Monday’s incident was the fifth such instance where cops helped candidates get their admit cards.
