Navase, who is posted with the Sakinaka police station in Mumbai, had on November 29 claimed a hillock barefoot after a man called Nawab Mansoori had gone there with the intention of killing himself.
He not only risked his life by climbing the 50-feet high hillock without safety gears but also negotiated with Mansoori for over 30 minutes to stop him from taking the extreme step.
Mansoori hails from Rajasthan and lives on Mumbai footpaths. He was frustrated about his financial situation and thus had gotten drunk and climbed the hillock with the intention to jump.
Locals had noticed what he was doing and immediately called the police for help.
Nevase, on receiving the distress call, had immediately rushed to the spot and using his commando training climbed the spot and kept a distance of 5 feet from Mansoori so as not to spook him.
He kept Mansoori engaged in talks and even promised to help him to get his salary from his employer. He kept him engaged in talks for nearly 30 minutes and then persuaded him to come down with him.
Meanwhile, many others had reached the spot, but instead of helping Navase or Mansoori had kept their distance and were only busy in recording the whole thing on their mobile phones.
