This post went viral in no time, with many praising the cop for her dedication.
To help out Jayant, who did not have family support in Jhansi, she has been transferred to Agra so that her family can help and assist her with childcare.
“When I saw the image and read the story, I spoke to the Inspector General (IG) Jhansi, who has rewarded the constable with Rs 1,000 in cash. I got to know that she is very hard-working. Despite the fact that she has a newborn, she did not take childcare leave. She opted to go to duty. When I spoke to her, she said the only problem she is facing is that she does not have family support,” DGP Singh told The Indian Express.
Many were left quite pleased with the police department’s decision and took to social media to express their delight. However, some others pointed out the lack of facilities the viral picture highlighted.
