PUDUCHERRY: The men in khaki too have a human face and we do not get to see that often. Tuesday turned out to be one such occasion when the cops came to aid of a hearing and speech impaired girl, who had excelled in studies. The police personnel of Grand Bazaar station, assured a financial assistance of `45,000 to 18-year-old Neelavathy, to pursue her studies.

The girl from Sanjeevi Nagar had passed out from Sri Patchaiappan School for the hearing impaired scoring 490/500 in the Class X board exam. But her ambition of studying a six-year-course in a Madurai hit a road block after failing to raise the required amount. Her mother, Anusuya, working in a leather company for a monthly salary of `3,000, was struggling to make both ends meet. Meanwhile, the girl’s plight was noticed by the police of Grand Bazzar. Sub inspector P K Sajith said we came know about it from Roshini, constable John’s daughter. Roshini is also hearing/speech impaired. On hearing the girl’s plight, it was decided to pool money and help her in studies. As such, `45,000 was collected and handed over to the girl on Monday night. The police personnel assured the girl that they would support her studies in future as well.
