Two Maldivian police officers have been commended for their bravery after saving a family from drowning in Lakshadweep.
Chief Inspector of Police Ahmed Abdul Azeez and Chief Inspector of Police Mohamed Nazim were undergoing training at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA) when they came upon a family of four drowning in Lakshadweep – an atoll located off the coast of Kerala.
They saved the family, including two children.
They have been commended for their bravery by both SVPNPA and Maldives Police Service.
“…we acknowledge your bravery and instantaneous action that saved lives. #BravoMPSofficers” said Maldives Police Service in a tweet on Saturday morning.
