TIRUPATI: In a wacky incident, a six-year-old UKG student approached the local police station and sought their intervention in clearing the traffic problems he and his fellow students were facing on their way to school.
Though the incident occurred in Palamaner of Chittoor district on Thursday, it came to light on Saturday after a video of the boy talking to the police went viral on social media. In the video, the boy, identified as Karthik, a student of Adarsha School, was seen complaining to the police that the roads were dug in the area and tractors were blocking the way to his school. The boy asked Palamaner circle inspector N. Bhaskar to come to his school and clear the traffic problems as the students were facing hardships every day to reach their school.
Bhaskar assured Karthik that he would clear the traffic problems and gave the boy his contact number, and asked him to call anytime and tell him if there were any problems.
Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, Bhaskar said works were underway on the school premises as there was a drainage block there, and to sort out the frequent traffic jams, the police had to set up barricades.
"It is the busiest junction where the drainage repair works are underway. As barricades are set up to regularise the movement of vehicles, it caused some inconvenience to the traffic flow. We are surprised that a six-year-old boy, along with his father, came to the police station without any fear and complained about the traffic woes. We assured him that we would solve the traffic problems at the earliest," the inspector said.
