Cop pays fine for driver who brought cash from son’s piggy bank
A senior police inspector paid a driver’s fine after getting to know that the driver had brought money from his child’s piggy bank to free his vehicle.
Senior police inspector, Ajay Malviya, was moved when he saw the auto driver using his own son’s savings to pay the fine and decided to pay the amount out of his (inspector’s) pocket.
The auto driver had reportedly parked his vehicle in a no-parking zone on August 8, for which he was issued a fine of about 2,000 Rupee. The vehicle was seized as he could not pay the fine.
Unable to pay the fine himself, he brought coins from his son’s piggy bank to the police – however, the police refused to accept the coins, according to reports.
A teary-eyed driver approached the police and requested that his vehicle be returned to him.
Noticing the plastic bag of coins in his hand, the cop asked him what the trouble was. Upon getting to know about the driver’s financial situation, Mr Malviya returned the boy’s money and paid the fine himself. – ndtv.com
