Transport Minister G.S. Bali expressed his happiness over the extra ordinary achievement of Shalini Agnihotri, daughter of Ramesh Agnihotri, a conductor in HRTC, for her induction in Indian Police Services (IPS) besides excelling herself in the Police Academy, for which she was awarded by the President of India.

Transport Minister congratulated the girl and her family for the rarest feat. Bali said that very soon a scheme to reward the meritorious children of the HRTC employees would be launched to encourage their children for getting higher education.

Shalini Agnihotri has emerged on top in her IPS training and won the coveted Prime Minister’s Baton and the Home Ministry’s Revolver for being the best all-round trainee officer of the 65th batch of IPS.

She was the cynosure of all eyes as she commanded with aplomb the Passing Out Parade of her batch of officers at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA) here in the presence of President Pranab Mukherjee.

Agnihotri, who secured 285th rank in the Civil Services exam last year, emerged on top of the 148-member batch as she completed 46-week police training at the academy. She also bagged the Vandana Malik Trophy for the best all-round female officer trainee, LB Sewa Trophy for the best female officer trainee in outdoor subjects, Alakh Sinha Trophy for investigation, G S Arya Trophy for best officer trainee in co-curricular activities and the Home Ministry’s Trophy for best essay writing on ‘communal harmony and national integration’.

Agnihotri has been allotted her home state cadre.
