It was a moment of pride for an Andhra Pradesh police inspector when he could salute his daughter, who is the Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP).
During a police meeting in Tirupati, Shyam Sunder, the police circle inspector currently working in Tirupati Kalyani Dam police training centre saw his DSP daughter, Jessie Prasanthi, at the police meet dubbed “Ignite.”
Sunder's instant reaction was to raise his hand in salute to his officer.
What transpired between the two was witnessed by many and warmed everyone's heart.
On seeing his daughter at the prestigious police conference, Sunder approached Prasanthi and saluted her, as she holds a higher rank to him.
Andhra Pradesh police in a tweet appreciated the father-daughter duo.
"#APPolice1stDutyMeet brings a family together! Circle Inspector Shyam Sunder salutes his own daughter Jessy Prasanti who is a Deputy Superintendent of Police with pride and respect at #IGNITE which is being conducted at #Tirupati. A rare & heartwarming sight indeed! #DutyMeet," the police said in a tweet.
Prasanthi is slated to become a member of the elite Indian Police Service (IPS) in some years.
Prasanthi is from the 2018 batch, who took charge as the DSP of Guntur of urban south and is currently attending the police meet under the women's safety initiative “Disha.”
Sunder was elated to see his daughter interacting with senior IPS officers right in front of him, prompting him to surprise Prasanthi with the salute and addressing her as “madam.”
On receiving the salute, Prasanthi reciprocated in similar manner and burst into laughter saying "enti nanna" (what is this dad) in Telugu and in a jovial mood amid a sea of police officials who witnessed this rare professional moment.
"There is no bigger happiness than children becoming successful in life. I have the belief that my child will serve the people with integrity," said Sunder.
Reflecting on the inspiring development, Tirupati Superintendent of Police (SP) Ramesh Reddy said scenes like this generally play out in movies.
"I feel very proud to see the father-daughter duo donning uniform and serving the people at the Tirupati duty meet. All the best Prasanthi," said Reddy.
