BOAT NO. 6754

This adventurous story is about Kabir Mahlotra who worked  for Maharashtra Police and was transferred to small city Phoolgarh. With all the excitement in his heart, he went to the police station but was surprised to see only two lazy policemen and one Inspector Balwan. One day he saw the Inspector talking really softly to someone over the phone. What Kabir could make out was– “40 Lakh..Tuesday..Drugs..Boat Number 6754”. He immediately realized that this was his chance to prove himself and be a hero. After making plans, he reached the port and bravely waited for the ship to arrive. After an hour long fight with sailors, Kabir called the Mumbai Police and all the corrupt Phoolgarh policemen and sailors were arrested for their involvement in the drug racket. For his bravery and dedication, Kabir was felicitated by the state police department and was awarded a gallantry medal from the President of India. It takes guts to bring the baddies to book!
