Congress President Rahul Gandhi played a Good Samaritan by helping an injured constable during Congress roadshow in Bhopal on Monday. Gandhi spoke to the 24-year-old cop Nitin Baghel over phone after he hurt his leg while on duty. Nitin, who was deployed to keep the crowd at bay during the roadshow, got injured after his foot accidentally came very close to a bus wheel.

The young cop, who’s is posted in 15th battalion in Indore, was sent to Bhopal for the roadshow. As per TOI, Nitin said, “I didn’t know how it happened. Suddenly, I realised the wheel of the bus went over my foot. With the help of people around, I could manage to save myself.”

Soon after the accident that took place near VIP road, Upper Lake in Bhopal, Nitin was rushed to Hamidia Hospital. The moment Gandhi was told about the incident, he contacted Nitin. The injured cop said that the Congress chief called up Nitin and offered all kind of help for treatment. Nitin even told Gandhi that there was swelling in his leg and assured that he’d be fine soon.
