Proud moment for a father on duty; saluting his police officer daughter in Andhra


Tirupati: When the Andhra Pradesh Police on Monday posted on Twitter a heartwarming photo of the emotional bond between a father-daughter duo, both police officers on duty, little did they know that the post would take the internet by storm.

It was a proud moment for Circle Inspector Y Shyam Sundar when he saluted his daughter, Yendluru Jessy Prasanthi, who is presently posted as the Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) of Guntur district. Both are in Tirupati to attend the Andhra Pradesh State Police Duty Meet titled ‘Ignite’, being held there from January 4 to 7. Both had come face-to-face with her father for the first time while on duty ever since she joined the department after graduating successfully as the 2018-batch Indian Police Service (IPS) cadre.

The post showing Circle Inspector Y Shyam Sundar saluting his daughter, Yendluru Jessy Prasanthi, posted as Deputy Superintendent of Police in Guntur district, on the Andhra Pradesh police’s official Twitter handle, went viral, as netizens admired the mutual respect and affection between a proud father and his daughter who has now become a senior officer in the state police.

“#APPolice1stDutyMeet brings a family together! Circle Inspector Shyam Sundar salutes his own daughter Jessi 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 AP police tweeted.
