His children were waiting in the scorching summer heat to get a Covid PCR test on Saturday, ahead of the school reopening today, when the cops stepped up.

A video of the gesture has gone viral, with even Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman, sharing it as an Instagram Story. He captioned it: “Thank you, Ajman Police.”

In the video shared by the Ajman Police, the father can be heard narrating in Malayalam how a lot of families had turned up to get the PCR test done.

“As we were waiting under the sun, a policeman came and asked my wife and children to get into a patrol,” the father says in the video.

He can then be heard thanking the police in Arabic. As his family steps out, he asks them: “How was the AC police patrol?”

A policeman is seen interacting with them and waving goodbye.

A negative PCR test result is mandatory in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ajman to return to in-person schooling at the start of the new term.
