Sania Sahu, 11-year-old, became the young lady cop as Raipur Police force have put their best efforts to help the girl do her duty.
Sania who is visually impaired and is fighting kidney disease wished to wear police uniform on her birthday.
The dress shops all over the city denied to lend her the uniform since they needed documents with permission.
Raipur police came to know of this and arranged for a pre-birthday bash for her on Wednesday. They celebrated in the premises of the office of Inspector General of Police (Raipur Range).
Raipur SP Sanjeev Shukla told PTI, “Sania is visually-impaired ever since her birth and is undergoing dialysis every day for at least six hours for her kidney disease. She wanted to wear a police uniform on her birthday, which is on January 14. Although her father tried to arrange the uniform from market to fulfil her wish, the shopkeepers refused him citing requirement of necessary documents for it. After that, he contacted the SP office, following which, in consultation with senior officials, we agreed to fulfil her wish.”
Raipur Range IG Pradeep Gupta, Raipur Superintendent of Police Sanjeev Shukla and many other police officials, were present for her birthday celebrations.
