The softspoken officer is thrifty with detail. "You should not ask a woman's age," she says, then smiles, "I am 23-24 years old." She was in physical training at the Police Training College, Hazaribagh, for a year. Posted in Ranchi since January this year, she is getting to grips with the administrative part of the job. The eight-month module is due to end in August, after which she will be handed her first posting.
She was recruited on October 10, 2011. Her father, Salkhan Murmu, retired from the state's agriculture department at the end of the same month. "He was so happy to see me in active service before he retired," says Nisha, who hails from Sahebganj district and studied in Ranchi, at DAV Public School in Hehal and St Xavier's College.
