Since the COVID-19 pandemic struck, it has been a challenging time for everyone around the world. Even the world's most powerful countries like the United States were badly hit by the coronavirus outbreak, which infected millions and left thousands dead. India, too, is on the receiving end of the wrath from this contagion.
But these testing times also brought the best in some people, who went above and beyond their capabilities and mandate, to bring relief to as many people as possible. One such name is M N Anucheth, who is the deputy commissioner of police, in charge of the Whitefield division, Bengaluru.
If not for this valiant officer's efforts, many people in his area would have suffered. But Anucheth (IPS) walked the extra mile so people won't have to suffer amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
