The CRPF personnel feeds the child from a lunch box, who is seen wearing a black shirt and pant. He also goes on to wipe the face of the boy with his hand, and later makes him drink water from a glass.  

According to Zee News reports, Iqbal Singh was driving a vehicle in the CRPF convoy on which a terror attack took place in Pulwama on February 14 in which 40 CRPF personnel were martyred. Iqbal Singh then played a crucial role in saving the lives of many CRPF personnel injured in the attack.

Speaking about the emotional incident, Singh said that while he was having his lunch, he saw a kid who was hungry. He gave his food to the kid only to realise later that the kid seemed to have "paralysis" and was unable to eat by himself. So, Singh fed the kid with his hands and during that process, the video was shot. The video, titled 'We care', was posted by the state police on their Twitter account on Monday at 10.26 pm.

For this humane and selfless act, the CRPF DG is pleased to award Singh with DG's Disc and Commendation certificate. Currently, the video has gone viral on Twitter and people have praised the cop for his act. It is unclear who recorded the video. Within hours of sharing the clip on Twitter, it was seen by over 7,000 people and was re-tweeted over 1,000 times.
