Among them is young IPS officer Robin Kumar, who is winning hearts in Assam’s Barpeta district by performing dual duties as a corona warrior — a police officer and a doctor.
Before joining the police force, Kumar had served in the Rajiv Gandhi Super Specialty Hospital for more than two years.
An IPS officer, from the batch of 2017, is a specialist in medicine (MBBS, MD) and gold medalist, recently held a medical camp for the police personnel at Barpeta police reserve and conducted medical check-ups of as many as 95 police personnel.
The young man is also running a 50-bed Covid-19 care center with four ICUs for cops and their family members at the Barpeta police reserve.
“During the Covid-19 pandemic, our doctors are overburdened and overstressed. So, I came forward to share their burden as a doctor. A medical camp was organized for cops who are above 50-years-old. I performed medical check-ups here to know if there is any symptom of Covid-19 among the cops. A total of 95 police personnel attended the camp,” Dr. Robin Kumar told India Today.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and senior officials of Assam police have appreciated Dr. Robin Kumar for his exemplary service. In a tweet, Sarbananda Sonowal said- “An @assampolice warrior in the truest sense. Great gesture of service to humanity by Barpeta SP Dr. Robin Kumar, utilizing his skills to help doctors and healthcare workers in the fight against #COVID19.”
