Inspector Sohan Singh has done a commendable job in the ongoing pandemic Covid-19 and has been at the forefront not just for enforcement of covid SOPs and guidelines but also for the other humanitarian works. “Apart from maintaining routine duty of law enforcement, I am also helping all those families who need food, medicines or other items of daily living,” Inspector Sohan said.
