Girl wins race for job but loses race of life

Friday, 17 January 2020 | PNS | Lucknow

An aspirant for the post of constable won the race for the job but she lost the race of life as she died of cardiac failure soon after completing the police recruitment physical test.

The tragedy occurred when the girl’s family members were present outside the Reserve Police Lines in Bareilly, praying for her success in the physical test so that she could fulfil her ambition of being a member of the UP Police force.

According to reports, Anshikha Singh, a native of Fazalpur Sunder in Baghpat and the only girl child in the family, wanted to join the police force since her childhood.

Her father Ram Veer said that when Anshikha saw the opportunity, she applied for the post of police constable.

On Wednesday, Anshikha, along with her family, went to the Reserve Police Lines in Bareilly for the physical test in which she had to complete six rounds of the ground (2.4 kilometres) within 14 minutes to qualify for the entrance exam.

Ram Veer said that they kept waiting outside the Reserve Police Lines, praying that she would complete the task.

But tragically, though Anshikha covered the 2.4 km distance in 13 minutes, she became unconscious and fell on the track at the finish line.

Superintendent of Police (Rural) in Bareilly, Sansar Singh, along with PAC Commandant Vikas Kumar Vaidya and ASP Kamlesh Bahadur, who were present there, rushed the girl to the district hospital where the doctors pronounced her dead due to cardiac failure. Ramveer said they learnt of the shocking news from the police after Anshikha was declared dead.

Meanwhile, two suicides were reported on Thursday.

In Bahraich, a municipal body member was found hanging at a city hotel, police said on Thursday.

Krishna Bahadur Khadka (68) was chairperson of a Kohalpur municipality ward. The police were called to a private hotel on Wednesday when the staff could not open the door of a room. When the room was opened, the police found Khadka’s body, Circle Officer (City) Triyambak Nath Dubey said.

The body was sent for post-mortem.

Gajendra, son of the deceased, told reporters that his father had left the house on January 13 without informing anyone and later they learnt about his death.

In Shamli, a police constable allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree in the police lines.

SP Vinit Jaiswal said that constable Harender Yadav was found hanging on Wednesday.

The constable hailed from Meerut district and was posted at Shamli Police Lines.

The reason for the extreme step was not known.

The body was sent for post-mortem.
