#GrabHeroes – Vispenathan Vadiveloo

Recently one of our partner-drivers of 3 years, Vispenathan Vadiveloo, was awarded for bravery by ASP Ezral Ezwani Bin Abdul Malik (Ketua Balai Polis Pantai) for his help in catching a snatch thief.

So we caught up with him to find out what actually happened…

Vispenathan’s passenger, a woman in her 20s, was just about to enter the car when a snatch thief rushed in and yanked her necklace away. Without hesitation, Vispenathan got out of his car and chased the thief, who by then had mounted on a motorcycle to get away. A few good samaritans who were at the scene rushed to help and to call the police. And yes, they managed to stop the thief!

We’re very happy to report that both the passenger and Vispenathan were not harmed during the whole ordeal. Such a situation is one we definitely fear and hope it would never happen to us as it is beyond our control and anything can go wrong. But Vispenathan  and his quick thinking and selflessness has certainly handled it well.

On behalf of all of us from Grab, we would like to thank him for his partnership, dedication to his passengers, and his courage in making our passengers and country a little safer.

Baru-baru ini, salah seorang pemandu-rakan kongsi kami yang telah bersama kami selama 3 tahun, Vispenathan Vadiveloo, telah menerima penghargaan daripada ASP Ezral Ezwani Bin Abdul Malik (Ketua Balai Polis Pantai) atas keberaniannya membantu menangkap seorang peragut.

Jadi, kami menghubunginya untuk mengetahui cerita penuh…

Penumpang Vispenathan, seorang perempuan dalam lingkungan 20an, diserang dan rantai emasnya telah direntap oleh seorang peragut ketika baru saja mahu masuk ke dalam kereta. Mendengar jeritan penumpang tersebut, Vispenathan terus keluar daripada kereta untuk menangkap peragut tersebut yang sedang cuba melarikan diri dengan motornya. Beberapa orang di tempat kejadian turut bergegas untuk membantu dan memanggil polis. Akhirnya, peragut tersebut berjaya ditangkap!

Kami dengan sukacitanya memaklumkan bahawa penumpang tersebut dan Vispenathan tidak mengalami apa-apa kecederaan serius. Situasi itu amat membimbangkan dan kami harap ia tidak akan berlaku lagi kerana ia adalah di luar kawalan kami dan pelbagai perkara tak diingini boleh berlaku. Tetapi, Vispenathan telah berjaya menangani situasi itu dengan tangkas dan sangat berani.

Kami di pihak Grab, ingin mengucapkan terima kasih kepadanya atas kerjasama, dedikasinya terhadap penumpang, dan keberaniannya dalam memastikan penumpang dan negara ini lebih selamat.

Jika ada lagi pemandu seperti Vispenathan yang anda rasa patut menerima penghargaan, kongsikan bersama kami melalui emel sabrina@grab.com
