Amid the recovery of misry struck women and children there were some very rare heartening episodes of noble deeds. In many cases the policemen of West Punjab committed excesses on women but one example of police constable was rare exception. Fateh Mohd, a Muslim Police constable took one Sikh girl, 16 years old whose parents had been murdered in the communal riots to his house. After taking a copy of the holy Koran which was lying in his house, he swore before his young daughters, wife and aged mother that he would treat that girl as his own daughter. He kept his vow and saved that girl for a number of months. He made an earnest effort to locate her relations in East Punjab. Ultimately, he was able to find her brother who came to Lahore to take her, in the office of Chief Liaison officer, East Punjab and she gave the detailed statement how she was looked after by Fateh Mohd. Her statement is preserved in East Punjab Liaison Agency Records No.LV-26-ES.
Similarly, S. Narain Singh of Bathinda area gave shelter to a Muslim girl of tender age whose parents had been murdered during the communal riots. He got her admitted in the school along with his grand daughters. When she came up of the age of marriage, he was able to locate one distant relative of her through the Pak High Commissioner's office in India. He also prepared dowry articles for her marriage. The dowry articles he gave to her at the time of farewell on the Indo-Pak border. The episode was published in New York Times, USA with the title "Sweetest Revenge".
