When it comes to humanity, there are no gender barriers for the police and this was proved by Hanumanthupadu Sub Inspector Krishna Pavani from Prakasam district of Andhra Pradesh.
The SI was seen carrying an unidentified body on her shoulders to shift the body from the Hazipuram forest area in the hot sun for postmortem. She was photographed by locals when she was carrying the decomposed body which was wrapped in a cloth and placed on a bamboo stick on her shoulders and taken from the forest area where it was found.
This humanitarian act by a lady cop earned praises on social media after the picture went viral. YSRCP MP V Vijayasai Reddy also shared her picture on his social media handle and lauded her service. The YSRCP MP said that the display of humanity in the line of duty was truly great and was an ideal to be followed. Walking three kilometers in the hot sun and carrying the body to send it for post mortem was commendable and showed her commitment to her duty, he wrote on his Twitter handle.
విధినిర్వహణలో ప్రకాశంజిల్లాకు చెందిన మహిళా ఎస్ఐ కృష్ణపావని ప్రదర్శించిన మానవత్వం ప్రశంసనీయం.. ఆదర్శనీయం. హాజీపురం అడవిలో పడిఉన్న గుర్తుతెలియని శవాన్ని ఎర్రటిఎండలో మూడు కిలోమీటర్లు మోసుకొచ్చి పోస్టుమార్టం కోసం తరలించడం విధినిర్వహణ పట్ల ఆమెకున్న నిబద్ధత, మానవతా విలువల్ని చాటుతోంది. pic.twitter.com/E36yK9vwKB— Vijayasai Reddy V (@VSReddy_MP) March 22, 2022
Last year in a similar instance, a video of a lady SI K.Sirisha from Srikakulam carrying the body of a homeless man went viral on social media brings to the fact that women police in India are in no way inferior to their male counterparts.
