One such story is of Lucknow sub-inspector Nida Arshi who brought her daughter to duty so that she does not have to stay at home in Lucknow during the lockdown.
Arshi said she had to bring her daughter with her because her mother-in-law was sick and there was no one to look after the toddler. She also added that she is observing Ramzan fast
“Today I brought her as her grandmom who usually looks after her is unwell. At this time of pandemic, it’s essential to carry out our duty as police personnel. I’m also observing roza”, she told ANI, who shared the pictures of her along with her daughter.
The pictures of the cop have gone viral with many people saluting her sense of dedication while others thought that she should be given a leave as being outdoors could be risky for her daughter.
