    Excellent and highly commendable that the Inspector Sunita's role of helping Noorjahan is the best example in this present scenario of dividing people and creating communal atmosphere in the country. I salute the Inspector and hoping that the higher authorities of the department consider the plea of Noorjahan. - Thanks
