I saw a little boy lying in the road and there was a lot of blood coming from the back of his head.

The boy was on his way to school with his sister when the accident happened. The selfless Sikh did the unthinkable when he removed his turban to tend a seriously injured boy.

‘I started to roll my turban up but I put it back on again,’ he explained. I thought afterwards that this had been a bit of a mistake. When I saw the little boy was bleeding I decided this time I would take the turban off and use it. Anyone would have done the same.

I was only doing what I had to and trying to be a decent member of the community, Singh added.
