In a first, Delhi Police all women contingent takes part in parade

Saturday, 27 January 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The Delhi Police's all-women contingent marched down the Kartavya Path on Republic Day for the first time in its history on Friday.

The contingent was led by Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Shweta K Sugathan.

The Delhi Police contingent comprised one female gazetted officer, three women sub-inspectors, 44 women head-constables, and 100 women constables, all draped in red 'safa'.

The first all women contingent of the Delhi Police celebrated after their maiden Republic Day parade, by dancing to the drumbeats and distributing sweets on Friday over their historic achievement.

A video of the members of contingent in their uniforms, waiving their arms and dancing cheerfully to the tune played by their band, went viral on social media.

Sugathan had led the male marching contingents in 2023 too, when a woman officer led the male soldiers for the first time.

 "It was a goosebumps moment for all of us.

As our contingent reached the Red Fort, we were welcomed by our senior officials with great zeal," Shweta Sugathan, 2018 batch IPS officer who led the contingent in the parade, said.

 The audience at Kartavya Path loudly cheered after all women contingent of the Delhi Police marched on the 75th Republic Day for the first time in its history.

 History was made today when the first all women contingent and the band of Delhi Police marched on Kartavya Path this Republic Day, said Delhi Police spokesperson Suman Nalwa.
