Bengaluru, March 12: A photograph of a woman sitting in a car with a walky-talky in her left hand and a little girl sleeping on her lap is making rounds on Twitter.
Archana Jha, DSP Crime (Raipur) on late night round with her new born daughter. "Seva parmodharma". Feminism anyone? pic.twitter.com/FpGX9mDNJP— K P Ganesh (@KPGanesh) March 11, 2016
The photograph is of Archana Jha, the deputy superintendent of police of Raipur crime branch in Chhattisgarh who took along her two-year-old daughter during patrolling the state capital in the dead of night.
Archana's husband stays in Bilaspur, around 120 kilometres from the state capital, for job purposes and that has left the top policewoman to take care of their daughter herself.
Even during her pregnancy, Archana attended the duty when the chief minister of the state was on a visit to her area, this report said.
The DSP could avail only four-and-half months of maternity leave and had to carry out her duty till the last days of her pregnancy.
She does night duty twice a week and takes her daughter along with her since there is nobody at home to take care of her. Her daughter accompanies her till she completes the round, which at times takes the entire night, the report said.
Till now, Archana has succeeded in maintaining law and orde in the area. We hope she continues to carry on with the good job.
