When a poor dog recently got his head stuck in a matka or pot, it was a group of Bengaluru policemen that came to its rescue.

Abhishek Goyal, Deputy Commissioner of Police, traffic (east), who witnessed the rescue, tweeted about the incident.

"Just heard a lot of commotion in KSRP Reserve Line. Around 15 policemen were trying to rescue a stray dog who had managed to get his head stuck in a matka. First a cut was made to breathe. Then rescued. Could not click the final pic as the poor scared soul ran away asap," he wrote.

Needless to say, this kind gesture by the policemen is being appreciated by many on the internet.
