Policewoman cycling to work goes viral on Facebook
A photo of a policewoman cycling to work in Dhaka has gone viral on social media, reports bdnews24.com.
The picture of Constable Lutfa Begum, who is stationed at the Tejgaon Industrial Area Police Station, was posted on Facebook by Dhaka Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner Mostaque Ahamed.
“I am astonished and overwhelmed at the change in police!!” he wrote. “This morning I was on my way to work when I saw a policewoman cycling to work with a backpack and wearing a helmet.”
Though he had seen many changes during his 16 years in the force, the senior police officer found it 'quite noteworthy.'
“I believe this image of Lutfa’s commute is an unforgettable milestone in the change and development of the force. I am honoured that she is my colleague.”
The woman at the centre of the excitement, Constable Lutfa Begum, told the online newspaper she had been cycling for quite some time now.
“I come to work on my bike and ride it on official duties to the court and other places. It helps me avoid the Dhaka traffic.”
The policewoman, who hails from Sylhet’s Balaganj, was appointed on March 4, 2008.
