Q1. You are stranded in traffic in your car. You are driving the car. A poor girl looking very frail approaches you and start begging for money. Looking at the frail appearance, out of compassion, you take out your wallet to search for a ten Rupees note. The girl who is standing very near to you snatches the wallet and starts running. A man on a motorbike who see this act, catches the girl and starts beating her in full view of public. Now the traffic is moving and your car is in the middle of the road.

    As per the urgency of the situation, priority must be given to stop the biker from beating the girl. It is also a precautionary measure to save biker from any violence act since the girl is frail and any torture could lead to serious condition of the girl. In the present situation i would have been calm and should focus my behaviour towards solution of the problem. Then the girl should’nt be let free. She should be caught and i would have asked for the help of the biker to set his bike aside the road and take the nearest hospital or clinic for the first aid needs. As soon as we reached clinic, i should have Police for help so that the situation can be clarified that whether the girl has theft for her survival or she is associated with beggar gangs. The decision of filing an FIR should be left on the Police. Also i should thank the biker for his voluntary participation . Afterthat, i will leave the place for work, before that i will take the contact no. of policeman for further inquiry.

    This incident will alert me for future purposes to remain careful while dealing with any beggar. As far as that girl is concerned i will contact NGO’s in city to interfere and help the girl and also serve as a regulatory authority as far as the case is concerned.
