Phulnakhara: At a time when Odisha govt is leaving no stone unturned to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, Sadar Police station head constable Ajay Kumar Das, a frontline warrior has set an example as he decided to resume duty after his mother’s funeral on Tuesday.

Among three brothers, Ajay’s younger brother had died some years ago and his elder brother is bed-ridden. Ajay used to visit his ailing mother, but due to lockdown he was unable to meet his mother.

His mother had been suffering for long from multiple ailments. Her health started to deteriorate and she died on Tuesday afternoon. Ajay was on duty when he got the sad news. He took the permission of his senior officer and rushed for the funeral.

He took one-day leave and performed his mother’s last rite and returned back to duty to deal with the coronavirus situation in Odisha.
