Cops donate one-day salary for cancer treatment of social activist

Staff of the district police here donated their one-day salary for the treatment of social activist Doris Francis, who is suffering from cancer, a police official said on Saturday.

“Clad in a white salwar, kurta and a cap, and stick in her hand, Francis rendered voluntary services to manage traffic at Khoda tri-section on National Highway-24,” Senior Superintendent of Police Deepak Kumar Singh said.

The SSP visited her at the hospital on Saturday and handed her the cheque.

A resident of this district, Francis took to voluntarily managing traffic after the death of her 17-year-old daughter in a road accident at NH-24 around six years ago.

Earlier, taking cognisance of news reports, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had sanctioned Rs 3 lakh from PM National Relief Fund for treatment of Francis. She was also honoured by the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister for the service as a traffic controller.
