“The head constable had gone to his village when the two girls visited the city. Now that he was back, we felicitated him for his dedicated effort of taking these girls to the orphanage, which gave them a loving family,” said Jadhav.

PUNE: Head Constable SK Kamble was felicitated at the Deccan Police Station for taking two abandoned girls, Seema and Reema to Society of Friends of the Sassoon Hospital (SOFOSH) in 1998. 

These girls were later adopted by a couple from New Zealand. They recently visited the city while trying to trace their journey. 

SOFOSH is an orphanage being run by NGO Shreevatsa on the campus of the Sassoon General Hospital (SGH). The sisters were brought to the orphanage at a very young age. Seema was three years old while Reema was two years old.

Speaking to Sakal Times, Bhaskar Jadhav, Senior Police Inspector and in-charge of Deccan Gymkhana Police station, said SK Kamble, the head constable, who took the two girls to SOFOSH, has been traced.

“The head constable had gone to his village when the two girls visited the city. Now that he was back, we felicitated him for his dedicated effort of taking these girls to the orphanage, which gave them a loving family,” said Jadhav.

Officials from the SOFOSH noted that the elder girl, Seema, is now a teacher in New Zealand. Seema has also learnt Indian classical dance Bharatnatyam, as she wanted to feel close to their native land. Reema, the younger one is an engineer there.
