Prakasam police won accolades after they reacted swiftly to save the life of a person who had attempted to end his life.

A woman named P. Vijayasri alerted the police that her brother Muralikrishna had attempted to end his life. Acting quickly, Ongole I-Town Sub-Inspector Fatima tracked Mr. Muralikrishna’s mobile phone and in no time reached his house in Sujata Nagar, where he was found in a critical condition after consuming pesticide.

Meanwhile, Chimakurthy Sub-Inspector P. Nagaraja Reddy also rushed to the spot on a complaint received from Muralikrishna's cousin B. Sashidhar to whom he had confided about his suicide bid.

Police personnel from both the police stations rushed Mr. Muralikrishna to a private hospital here on Monday. Doctors managed to save him as he was brought to hospital in time.
