Rehana Gafur Shaikh:

Rehana Gafur Shaikh Currently post at Raj Bhavan

She started her journey as a Police Sub Inspector in 1989. Hailing from the vibrant city of Sangli, her roots are deeply embedded in a family with a strong military background. Her father, an ex-military man, instilled in me the values of discipline and resilience, shaping me into the person she is today. The character of a lady police officer portrayed in the television serial ‘UDAAN’ served as a profound source of inspiration that fuelled her ambition to become a police officer. The portrayal highlighted not only the strength and resilience of women in law enforcement but also their ability to bring about positive change within their communities. During her journey she had the privilege of contributing to various critical cases that have tested my skills and dedication. Notably, she was an integral part of the team involved in the high-profile Lokhandwala Shootout, demonstrating the importance of swift and strategic action in volatile situations. She says, remember that everyone’s journey is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all formula for success. Be true to yourself, stay open to opportunities, and enjoy the process of growth and self-discovery.

So guys we hope you will inspire from them and will encourage you to join police force.
