Her name is Archana Singh, but she was given the pseudonym of “Lady Dabang” by her batch mates in the 1996 batch. She has lived up to her name for 20 years of service in the Uttar Pradesh police. Undaunted by the criminals, she has not let down her seniors who reposed their trust in her since she joined.

Singh lost her husband, late sub-inspector Brijendra Bahadur Singh, in Hamirpur in a crossfire during an encounter. That did not deter her in leading the anti-eve teaser squad of GRP (Government Railway Police) Agra. She believes, “Woman harassment is a bigger menace in our country. Even women police officers feel unsafe in many circumstances. As a team leader my job is to boost confidence in them and help other women passengers too.” For example, in June 2015, three women constables patrolling in Parasthnath Express were harassed by four men who were nabbed by Lady Dabang.

She was thus a natural choice for the designation of an SHO at Agra Fort which has a heavy footfall of Indian as well as international tourists. The number goes as high as thousand in a day. The news was conveyed to her by senior superintendent of police (SSP), GRP, Gopeshnath Khanna on Friday. Singh responded by stating her simple mantra for success, “Be punctual, reach the station at 10 am sharp and be alert and vigilant. As a woman cop, my priority will be to zero down on women harassment cases in the Railways.”

We heartily congratulate Lady Dabang for becoming the first woman SHO of GRP in our country and wish her all the best for success in her newest responsibilities!
