In March, news agency ANI reporter Lokesh covered a story of Commando Sunaina Patel posted in the Naxal hit area of Chhattisgarh. The story that broke the internet on International Women’s Day was special not only because she was a woman commando but because she continued to patrol the area while she was 8-months pregnant. Sunaina is a commando in the elite anti-Naxal unit In Chhattisgarh.

Commando Sunaina joined the unit during pregnancy last year

According to the reports, she joined the unit with 2-month pregnancy. She never stepped back from her duties and decided to take rest only when her officers asked her to take it easy in the advanced stages of pregnancy. During her patrolling days, she was carrying a full load of weapons, including AK-47 and a backpack that weighed around ten KG.

In a recent tweet, ANI reporter Tanmay informed that Sunaina had given birth to a healthy baby girl. He added to his tweet that both mother and child are healthy. He also posted a few photographs of Sunaina with her daughter.

She has suffered miscarriage before

Abhishek Pallav, SP Dantewada, said that Sunaina had suffered a miscarriage before while performing her duties. Even though she was reluctant to go off duty, her officers asked her to take proper rest as everyone was concerned for the wellbeing of the mother and the child. He added that her contributions are inspiring many women to join the anti-Naxal force. 

Social media flooded with wishes

After learning about Sunaina’s daughter, many users on social media wished good health and happiness for mother and daughter. Many called her inspiration for the young generation, and her story will motivate more women to join forces against anti-India elements.
