The South Central Railway (SCR) has got its first woman guard on freight trains.
D Mohini Kumari (43), a graduate who was appointed a clerk in SCR on compassionate ground in 2006 after the death of her husband, took charge of her new assignment.
She qualified for the post of guard in a departmental examination and later underwent training at Secunderabad.
Talking to PTI, Mohini said she is prepared to face any kind of challenge in her new job, where women are rarely appointed.
She advised women to break new grounds and be ready to face challenges in life.
