The extraordinary moment a Sikh man broke a strict religious taboo by removing his turban and using it to rescue a dog from drowning in a river has been caught on camera.
Sarwan Singh, 28, took off his turban as soon as he noticed that the dog was in trouble in an irrigation canal in Punjab, India.
The man then gave one end of the long cloth to a friends at the top of the steep bank and used it as a rope as he lowered himself down to the water’s edge.
