Balasore: Going beyond the call of duty and setting an example, Balasore SP Jugal Kishor Kumar Banoth today aided a father-daughter duo in reaching hospital after the two sustained critical injuries in a road accident.
The police official was heading towards Oupada in an SUV for a public hearing when he spotted the victims, identified as Kailash Chandra Sahu and his daughter of Achyutipur village under Soro police limits, in a critical condition on NH-16 near Begunia in the district. An unidentified vehicle had hit the two leaving them grieviously injured.
