Mangaluru, Feb 24, 2018: Traffic policeman Revana Siddappa who had recently noticed a metal strip that had come off the concrete road on the Bunts Hostel-Mallikatta stretch had tried to hammer it so that it does not cause harm to any motorist.

Even City Police Commissioner who came to know about it honoured Revana Siddappa with a cash reward of Rs 5000 during the phone-in programme held on Friday.
