Sunita Yadav, the lok rakshak dal (LRD) constable, who became an overnight Twitter sensation for taking on a minister’s son for defying curfew, expressed her wish to resign saying that she wants to pursue civil services exam and become an IPS officer.
On Monday, Yadav went to meet city police commissioner RB Brahmbhatt and after discussions with other senior police officers, she was finally allowed to meet him. Yadav informed the top cop that she wants to become an IPS officer and serve the society while expressed her wish to resign from the post.

“I instructed her to behave properly with people. No

police officer should use abusive language with people,” Brahmbhatt told TOI.
Yadav had stopped state’s junior health minister Kishore alias

Kumar Kanani’s son Prakash on July 8 who was arrested on Sunday along with his two friends for defying curfew orders. Yadav’s video and audio clips questioning Prakash for violating curfew orders had gone viral. Based on the video, they were arrested and released on bail. However, Yadav found massive support on Twitter after the incident.

On Monday, another video and pictures of the woman cop surfaced. In one such video, Yadav is seen making people do sit-ups outside shops in

Varachha area for violating social distancing rules. Wearing a camouflage printed mask, she is also seen threatening to hit people with her baton.
“The incident was brought to notice of senior police officials of Varachha police station after which she was shifted to another location as locals complained about her rude behaviour. There are complaints about she using abusive language,” said a senior police officer. A photo in which Yadav is seen posing with a car with a board ‘police’ written on it was also doing rounds on social media. The car is registered in name of her father Madanlal.

Screenshots of a twitter handle with her name and photo registered in March 2012 also went viral. Over the past few days, multiple fake accounts with Sunita Yadav’s name and photos have also cropped up.
On Monday, her Whatsapp display picture (DP) was that of Priyanka Chopra as an IPS officer she played in Bollywood movie Jai Gangajal. On the photo, it is written IPS goals on graphic image of burning fire.
