Mumbai, July 25 (IANS) With the city having seen heavy rainfall this monsoon, Indian Super League (ISL) football team Mumbai City FC’s owner Ranbir Kapoor on Saturday presented 2,000 raincoats to the Mumbai traffic police, acknowledging their service to the Maharashtra capital.
The raincoats were presented to joint commissioner of police Milind Bharambe to help protect the traffic police against the heavy downpour and help them perform their duties with ease.
“I have always mentioned that this club is for the people of Mumbai and this is a small token of appreciation to Mumbai’s traffic police,” said Bollywood star Ranbir.
“They work tirelessly day and night, weekdays and weekends, and sometimes, we all tend to take them for granted. On behalf of Mumbai City FC, I would like to thank commissioner Milind Bharambe and his entire staff for the crucial function they perform.”
In response, Bharambe said: “The Mumbai traffic police appreciate the gesture shown by Mumbai City Football Club and we wish Ranbir Kapoor and his team good luck for the upcoming season.”
The outfit finished seventh in the eight-team league last season. The 2015 season of ISL commences on October 3.
