They sang traditional songs and her colleagues also ensured every ritual was followed to make her day special.
Her wedding was fixed for April 30 this year but, she had to report on duty due to the ongoing curfew so her colleagues decided to surprise her by hosting the haldi ceremony at the police station.
Station in-charge Dilip Daan in an interview said:
When we came to know that she is unable to go to her village to attend her haldi ceremony, we all decided to make the celebration unique inside the police station, as the auspicious ‘Muhurat’ could not be rescheduled.
