Bengaluru: In a kind gesture, Bengaluru police on Monday appointed five children, suffering from life-threatening illnesses, as city police commissioners for one whole day to make their wish of becoming cops come true.
The programme was organised in association with NGO Make A Wish India. The children clad in police uniform, wielding baton, gun and handcuffs, took charge as the police commissioners in the morning and played the role of commissioner for the rest of the day.
