Incredible Indians-Nagappa Mali
From this festive season The Indian Fusion is starting a new series called ‘Incredible Indians’ that will showcase the unsung heroes of our country. ‘Incredible Indians’ is all about those who fought real battles of life and emerged as winners for their country, their society and their family. It’s not about a Shahrukh Khan or a MS Dhoni, it’s about those who even after doing so much for the country and the society did not get the right attention and appreciation !
Our first ‘Incredible Indian’ is a senior police inspector from DB Marg police station, Mumbai. All of us know who Ajmal Kasab is , but not many of us know Nagappa Mali , he was that brave policeman who got hold of Ajmal Kasab ,and that too alive.
The dark night of 26/11 in his own words-
“On that night, I was about to go home when I got to know that some terrorists were headed towards my jurisdiction. I immediately formed two teams, one of which was posted at Girgaum Chowpatty and the other at the Tribhovandas Zhaveri Lane. When the Skoda neared the barricades that we had erected at Girgaum, the two men sitting inside turned their head lights to full beam, squirted water on their wind-shields and turned on the wipers in an attempt to hide their faces.
However, as we had information about the colour and make of the car, we signalled them to stop and demanded that they emerge from the car with their hands raised. Kasab who was sitting in the passenger seat came out with his hands raised but then immediately started firing from his AK-47 which he had hidden between his knees.”When the firing started, ASI Tukaram Umble got hit even as the rest of the team pounced on Kasab and subdued him. In the meantime, Inspector Vinod Sawan who had gone to the driver’s side saw that the driver, Ismail, was also firing with his weapon and Sawant and his associate immediately opened fire on him, said Mali. Ismail was declared dead later and Kasab, who initially pretended to be dead, was taken to the hospital”.
And today we are serving that monster Ajmal Kasab with biryani and are not even aware of this man who without thinking of his family and his own life served for the people of the nation.
Being Indians we need to respect his contribution… On behalf of our country we salute this man of pure dedication and bravery for his enormous contribution to humanity and the people of INDIA.
Circulate this story as much as you could as it will restore faith in the Police Department of our country and will inspire other police officers to contribute more and more to the welfare of this nation !
