June 4, 2020: An Indian-American businessman opened the doors of his home in Washington to over 70 people demonstrating against the custodial killing of George Floyd, has risen as a hero after he helped some strangers, fed them and made sure they were safe in his house.



The 44-year-old Indian-American, Rahul Dubey, who has been living in Washington DC from past 17 years, welcomed a large number of people in his house with some adjusting on the couch, some finding space in the rooms, while some were indulged to get rest even on the ledges of the bathtub.



Dubey also gave them food, water, and helped them charge their phones. As some of the protesters were hit by pepper spray, he helped them with milk and eyes for relief for their eyes.



The day after the Monday's protests, Mr Dubey, the owner of the Alvarez Dubey Trading Co., appeared in major news media outlets and was hailed as a saviour as those who took shelter in his house started tweeting about it.
