Another proud father
This story resembles the heart touching story of another police officer who saluted his daughter who is the Superintendent of Police of Jagtiyal district of Telangana. Deputy Commissioner of Police A R Umamaheswara Sarma said that he is proud to salute his daughter, Sindhu Sarma, who is his senior, reported The Indian Express. The father-daughter duo came face to face while performing their duties once during the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) meeting and the very proud father saluted his daughter, who is an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer of 2014 batch.
“This is the first time we have come together while doing our duties. I am fortunate to work with her,” said Umamaheswara Sarma.
