A Hindu girl Pushpa Kohli has become the first police officer from her community in Pakistan’s Sindh province.

Kohli has been posted as Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) after she passed the provincial competitive examination taken by hundreds of other candidates, according to media reports.

The news of her appointment was shared by tweets on social media and has gone viral. The news was first broken by Pakistani human rights activist and blogger Kapil Dev . Kolhi is the first woman from the Hindu community to join the provincial police force as ASI.

“Pushpa Kolhi has become the first girl from #Hindu community who has qualified provincial competitive examination through Sindh Public Service Commission and become Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) in Sindh Police. More power to her!,” Kapil Dev tweeted.

Earlier in January this year, another Pakistani Hindu girl Suman Pawan Bodani, was also appointed a judge to the civil and judicial magistrate in Sindh , the Southern Pakistan province that is home to thousands of people belonging to Hindu community.
