India: Police officer disarms man with machete

This is the amazing moment a police officer disarms a machete-wielding man with his bare hands.

Arun Kumar was on patrol near Kayamkulam in India when he was attacked by a man.

Footage shows the police officer getting out of the squad car and approaching the man, who is sitting on a moped.

The man then grabs a large blade wrapped in a white towel before threatening the officer with it.

The man points his gun and then swings the machete at Mr Kumar, who amazingly stops it with his hand.

The pair then get into a scuffle before the police officer manages to wrestle his attacker to the ground and disarm him.

The suspect was reportedly arrested and the weapon used in the attack was confiscated.

Mr Kumar was presented with a trophy and certificate for his bravery in the June 12 attack.

He had to have his hand sewn up with seven stitches from grasping the blade and luckily didn’t sustain any serious injuries.

Mr Kumar said: “I caught him before I confiscated the gun and took it to the police station. Since then he has been remanded in custody.

In 2019, we reported how a police officer risked his life for a commuter who ran across the tracks to catch an approaching train after seeing the man try to climb onto the platform.

CCTV footage showed Anil Kumar, 55, jumping onto rail tracks and dashing towards a man who was walking towards the platform.

After giving the man a shove to safety, he runs out of the way of the fast-moving train.

India’s Railway Minister Piyush Goyal praised the police officer’s courage on Twitter.

He wrote: “Brave work by RPF Constable Anil Kumar who immediately jumped to the rescue of a commuter crossing the tracks to save him from an oncoming train in Mumbai.

“It is highly recommended to use bypass to avoid such incidents which can be fatal.”
