The Hush Post: Here is another Sindhu from Telangana doing proud to her father. Deputy Commissioner of Police AR Umamaheswara Sarma has been serving the police force for over three decades while his daughter joined the force four years ago.
On Sunday when they confronted each other in the uniform, he saluted her. Deputy Commissioner of Police AR Umamaheswara Sarma feels proud when he sees his senior officer Sindhu Sarma, who is Superintendent of Police of Jagtiyal district of Telangana. The difference is that she is also his daughter.
Sarma, who is retiring next year, is presently serving as DCP in Malkajgiri area under Rachakonda police commissionerate in Hyderabad. His daughter Sindhu Sarma is an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer of 2014 batch.
The father-daughter duo came face to face while on duty at the public meeting of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) at Kongara Kalan on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Sunday.
“This is the first time we have come together while doing our duties. I am fortunate to work with her,” said Umamaheswara Sarma, who began his career as Sub-inspector and was recently conferred the IPS rank.
“She is my senior officer. When I see her, I salute her. We do our respective duties and don’t discuss this, but at home we are just like any father and daughter,” the proud father said.
Sindhu, who was looking after women’s security at the public meeting, said, “I am very happy. This is a good opportunity for us to work together.”
