Jhansi Lady Cop With Baby At Work Transferred To Preferred District
Jhansi: The Uttar Pradesh police has promptly transferred the mom cop who was seen discharging her duties with her infant daughter in a picture which went viral on Social Media, to her choiceful district.
In the picture, Archana Jayant, the cop, was present along with her six-month-old daughter, Anika, in the Nagar Kotwali police station, and was clicked by someone who shared her picture which later on went viral on social media three days ago.
Deputy Inspector General of Police (Jhansi zone) Subhash Singh has applauded the dedication of Archana — who also has a 10-year-old daughter — and announced a cash reward of Rs. 1,000.
The DIG informed”UP DGP O P Singh also talked to Archana on Sunday and assured her of transfer to Agra, the district of her choice,”.
“The quintessential 21st century woman, an ace at any responsibility she is trusted with! Had a conversation with Archana this morning & ordered her transfer to Agra, closer home! The lil one brightening Jhansi Pstn, has inspired us to explore creche options at every police line,” DGP tweeted.
Archana’s family lives in Agra and her in-laws are in Kanpur. Her husband works for a company in Gurgaon. She cannot be posted to Kanpur and, therefore, opted for posting in Agra and orders were being issued for her transfer there so that she can get her family’s support.
There are about 350 women constables posted in the district, out of which 100 are like Archana who are working despite having young kids to look after.
