Messiah of passengers: Secunderabad Railways inspector U Narasimha awarded Presidents Police Medal

Hyderabad: When inspector U. Narasimha is around, everything is safe – relay coils, cable drums, copper pots of locos, and above all life and property of the passengers travelling in the trains. He has busted gangs stealing passengers' belongings and recovered stolen items worth Rs. 1.35 crore.

Considering his dedication, sincerity, the 'go the extra mile' attitude, and outstanding leadership, Mr. Narasimha, an inspector of the Railway Protection Force (RPF), South Central Railway (SCR), is one among the 15 officers who were awarded the President's Police Medal for Meritorious Service.

Mr. Narasimha worked towards redressing passenger grievances and this won him laurels and praises from the passengers. His patience and courteousness were added qualities that enabled him to work well with the passengers. He has rescued several children, women, and destitute during his tenure.

He joined as a sub-inspector and has 24 years of unblemished service. For his initial training, he was posted at Hubli, and thereafter he worked at Hubli, Bellari, and Hospet.

He detected several railway property cases and brought crimes in railways under control. Considering his excellent track performance, he was awarded the Railway Week Award by the Railway Board in 2003 early on in his career. He put his best efforts at Secunderabad and Guntur as well.

When he was promoted as an inspector, he was posted at CIB, Kazipet, and Warangal. During his tenure, he has detected 45 gangs touting railway reservation tickets and has recovered around Rs. 25 lakhs worth of tickets. His efforts were also instrumental in detecting SLR theft gangs, signal tampering, and robbery cases. He also used his teams in the detection of narcotics and Excise cases in coordination with GPR, local police, and the Excise department.

Inspector Narasimha was active and often ventured into areas that didn't fall within the ambit of his portfolios. Due to his interest in solving technology-driven crimes, he detected bag lifting and chain snatching gangs and arrested them with the help of CCTV footage and mobile phone tracking.

In 2013, Mr. Narasimha was awarded the DG Insignia for his all-around best performance.

With his dedication and sincerity, he has now earned a reputation as the best dependable force subordinate officer.
