Jhansi Ki Raani.. Maa cop's love for daughter, UP Police salutes her

Jhansi, Oct 28: She is darling of India now, but she is unaware. For her it is work as usual, but social media has gone crazy over the picture of a lady cop that is going viral. The entire country is now saluting this mom cop. For most, it shows the sacrifices a mom makes to bring up her baby.      

It's normal work for cop Archana Singh at the Jhansi Kotwali police station. While she works at the reception, her daughter sleeps at the desk. Like most other moms she doesn't want to leave her kid unattended while she is at work. The 30-year old cop's dedication for work and baby caught the fancy of people and some posted the picture on social media and it went viral in no time. Twitterati lobbied for day care facilities at police stations for working women.

The picture was so touching that even senior police officers tweeted it. "Incredible. Doesn't need any caption," tweeted senior UP Police cop Navniet Sekera.

Archana's husband, who works for a private company,  lives in Gurgaon. She belongs to Agra. She has been posted in Jhansi since 2016. Archana has no options but to bring her six-month-old daughter to work. Her 11-year elder daughter lives with her parents in Kanpur.  

Her dedication is such that seniors salute her. "She is sincere and dedicated to her work," SO Umesh Chandra Tripathi said. Recently she got a cash award of Rs 1000 from DIG, Jhansi range, Shubhash Singh Bhagel. Archana knows that her seniors are helping her. "My seniors have been very helpful. Often, my daughter begins wailing while I am at work. My colleagues then take care of her," said the mom cop.

Well, there is some good news for Archana. She has now been transferred to Agra.

This is what she was wishing for. "I wish I could get a transfer to Agra so that I could be with my family and raise both my daughters along with carrying on my work," Archana had said before her transfer. Big victory for a mom, we must say!
