The generous stranger...

Dipu Malakar | Update:

Recently, in the city's Asad Gate area, pedestrians were seen busy taking photos and recording something. As this correspondent made through his way it was found that a man was bathing a ‘pagol’ (lunatic). The man who was being taken care of was called Ruhul Amin. For about two months he had been seen in the area. The man who shaved and bathed him also gave him some new clothes besides food and money. This was Awlad Hossain. He is an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of anti-terrorism unit of police. He said he used to do the same to other people in distress, too. He said it gave him some satisfaction.
