In a first for Delhi police, woman head constable promoted for tracing 76 missing children

A woman head constable has become the first Delhi Police officer to get out-of-turn promotion for tracing 76 missing children under an incentive scheme. Seema Dhaka of Samaypur Badli police station has been promoted as an assistant sub-inspector for finding the missing children in nearly three months. 

Fifty six of the 76 children she traced are below the age of 14 years. These children have been traced not just from Delhi, but from other states such as Punjab and West Bengal, various media reports said.

Dhaka is a farmer’s daughter from Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli and has an eight-year-old son. 

In order to motivate police personnel to trace or recover children who have gone missing from their homes, the Commissioner of Police has issued an incentive scheme on August 5, 2020 to the effect that “Any Constable or Head Constable who recovers 50 or more missing children below the age  of 14 years (15 children out of them of the age group less than 8 years) within a period of 12 calendar months will be considered for the grant of out-of-turn promotion”.

Further, those who trace more than 15 children in the same period shall be given ‘Asadharan Karya Puraskar’. The order has brought a visible change in tracing or recovery of missing children and more and more children have been traced since August 2020.
