An official of the Telangana Police Department on September 16 rescued a stray dog stuck in bushes after heavy rains. The dog was stuck in bushes along the bank of a local stream which had overflowed due to heavy rains in the area, informed Gandhi Naik, Circle Inspector, Nagarkurnool Police Station. A video of the incident has gone viral on social media. In the video, the police official could be seen pulling the dog out of the bushes and carrying it to the machine called for rescue. While speaking to ANI over the phone, Naik said the local stream often overflows during the monsoon season, which is why a team of officials had already been deployed in the area in case of emergencies. During his routine patrol, Mujeeb, the police official, noticed that the dog was stranded in the bushes and was unable to move, so he immediately called for a pit digging machine & rescued the dog. The video has earned him much praise on social media.
