KUALA LUMPUR: Two traffic police personnel who escorted a pregnant woman to Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II in Kota Baru, Kelantan, received certificates of recognition.

L/Kpl Mohammad Rizwan Razali said at first he thought the driver, who was the woman's husband, was committing an offence by driving against traffic flow during the incident on Jan 23.

"During the incident, my colleague L/Kpl Mohammad Najmi Daud and I had just concluded an operation nearby.

"I saw the car was heading against traffic from Tangok to Jelawat.

"I stopped the car and was informed by the driver that his wife is on the verge of giving birth. I then obtained permission from my superior to escort them to a nearby clinic," he said when met during the closing ceremony for Ops Selamat on Tuesday (Jan 31).

"Once we reached the clinic, there was no ambulance available. I then decided to escort the couple to Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II, Kota Baru some 20km away.

"I was only performing my duty in assisting a member of the public who was facing hardship and emergency.

"This recognition is an impetus for me to give the best service for the people," he said.

Meanwhile, L/Kpl Mohammad Najmi said he and his colleague used an alternative route in escorting the couple.

"Traffic was heavy that day so we decided to use an alternative route to Kota Baru after it was approved by our superior.

"I am grateful that the woman managed to give birth safely without any complications," he said.

Both policemen received the certificates from Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain.
