Police officials in Andhra Pradesh came to the rescue of a group of B-Tech students who were stuck in knee-deep floodwater in NTR district’s Nandigram. Fearing that they won’t be able to reach their college on time, students requested the Nandigama police to step in.
Notably, the highway near Nandigram was marooned by overflowing flood water, and surrounding villages were completely drowned. Coming to their aid, the police arranged a crane to cross the overflowing highway and drop the students at the exam center. The police also helped the students get back home after the exam. Andhra Pradesh Police shared a video of the rescue on their official Twitter handle.
