The IGP, who got down from the vehicle, went near the crowd and saw a man critically injured and battling for life. He immediately asked his driver and the public to lift Rangaswamy and place him in his car. He then shifted the injured and admitted him to a hospital, thus displaying his humanitarian concern.
