�Our senior officials appreciated his dedication to duty. I will recommend his name for recognition,� Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Pranjit Bora told The Assam Tribune.
A senior police official said raincoats and other equipment are generally provided to traffic personnel to continue their duty during the rainy season.
