In a touching display of compassion, Civil Police Officer M A Arya from Kochi Women’s Police Station breastfed a hungry four-month-old baby while the infant’s ailing mother was hospitalised nearby. Officer Arya, a mother of a nine-month-old herself, stepped forward to breastfeed the crying baby of a Patna resident undergoing treatment in the ICU of Ernakulam General Hospital.

According to the police, the family had been staying in Kerala for quite some time. They said that the Patna woman’s husband is currently in jail in connection with a case. While police personnel in the station pitched in to provide food for the three older children, Arya went above and beyond her call of duty by offering breast milk to feed the youngest one.
