Sadiq, who as a ten-year-old boy once worked as a one-day police commissioner for the city of Hyderabad, passed on Wednesday in Rekurti near Karimnagar. The boy, who has been suffering from leukemia for a long time, is now 17 years old, said his father Javed Basha. Sadiq was passionate about the police job.
Sadiq's three uncles are serving in the army while two work in the police department in Karimnagar. It was in this context, the Make a Wish Foundation focused on fulfilling his desire. On October 15, 2014, the Government appointed Sadiq as the one-day commissioner of the city of Hyderabad.
Sadiq took over the responsibilities from M. Mahenderreddy, who was the city commissioner at the time. Speaking to the media after the sad demise, his father, Javed Basha said that the doctors' efforts to save Sadiq were in vain and that he will be forever indebted to the police department for fulfilling his son's wish.
