Archana Singh – the ‘Dabangg’ Lady Cop!


Whenever there is an instance of a lady police-officer rising up in the ranks in our country, it becomes news. And why not?  The noise about women-empowerment is louder than ever now. So it makes best sense to talk about women’s taking over of high-profiles in all walks of life.

The cop being talked about in this news-story is Archana Singh. She’s an Uttar Pradesh cop and she’s been popularly-nicknamed ‘Lady Dabangg’ by her colleagues, given Archana’s track-record as a cop, which is impressive, as she has had the last word whenever she’s dealing with criminals in the state.

Owing to her fearless-doings in the police, she has been appointed to take charge as the country’s first-ever woman station house officer (SHO) of the Government Railway Police (GRP).


She has been handed over the Agra Fort station where she holds authority and keeps tabs on the ever-increasing footfall of locals and tourists on a daily-basis.

When the news of her deputation was conveyed to Singh, she was elated. “This is a great honour for me, for my 20 year-long service in Uttar Pradesh police. I will not let down my seniors who have shown confidence in me”, she was quoted saying.

Singh is the spouse of the late sub-inspector Brijendra Bahadur Singh, who perished in Hamirpur in a crossfire-battle during an encounter. Speaking about her secret of success, Singh likes to keep it simple. “Be punctual, reach the station at 10 am sharp and be alert and vigilant. As a woman cop, my priority will be to zero down on women harassment cases in the Railways.”

And when she isn’t tough-policing her territory, Singh keeps busy performing motherly-duties for her three children.
