New Delhi: The present generation is indeed hyped up about cop movies packed with action and thrill. On the other hand, numerous videos on social media of cops getting thrashed by the public or certain individuals not only shame us but also make us realise the crystal clear gap between reel and reality.
However, let’s put all the negativity aside for a moment and celebrate the real face of courage in form of real-life heroes who undertake their dignified jobs without much fame or recognition.
A video on a similar note has made the internet go gaga over the valour of a Kerala policeman who takes down a man who attacked him with a giant machete, and that too with bare hands.
In a recent viral video, several men can be seen standing by the streetside as a police vehicle pulls up next to them. As soon as a cop exits the vehicle, a man holding his bicycle gets a sense that the police have arrived to detain him.
The man quickly pulls out a giant machete wrapped in a white cloth and attacks the cop approaching him. As the attacker launches a powerful hit on the policeman, the cop not only subdues the attack with bare hands but also takes him down making him pin on the ground and snatching the weapon from him, while his colleague who was driving the van quickly takes the machete away.
The incident is said to occur at Para Junction near Kayamkulam in Kerala.
As the officer disarms the attacker, onlookers rush to help the police.
IPS officer Swati Lakra shared the video of her Twitter handle with caption, “How a real hero looks like… Kudos to this Sub Inspector of Police from Kerala”.

As per a Facebook post by the Kerala Police, the officer has been identified as Sub Inspector Arun Kumar, who is in charge at the Alappuzha Nooranad police station. Kumar has received seven stitches on his fingers after a minor injury in the incident.
