She is a 14 year old student, made SP just for a day for motivation.

With the help of reverse image search, we found out that this viral picture is from an event organized on account of International Women’s day 2020 by the district administration of Buldhana district in Maharashtra. In this event Sahrish Kanwal, a 14-year-old, from the Zilla Parishad Urdu High School, Malkapur tehsil took up the position of District Superintendent of Police in the Maharashtrian district of Buldhana.


We also found a video story by Times of India on its YouTube channel.

The date mentioned in the below screenshot grab of this video states that this video was published on 5th March 2020.

Therefore in our investigation, the claims made on this viral picture were found to be false.
