Telangana woman rides 1400 km to bring home her son

South India

A woman from Telangana travelled 1400 km on a scooty to bring back her son, who was stuck in the countrywide lockdown declared by the government to contain the coronavirus spread


Razia Sultana, a government school teacher in Bodhan, undertook the long journey with a special pass issued by the police to bring her son stranded at Nellore. Her son Mohammed Nizamuddin had gone to Nellore on March 12 after learning his friend’s father fell sick.

Upset over his son, Razia approached Bodhan ACP Jaipal Reddy and explained the situation. Jaipal Reddy granted a pass to Razia who then rode on a scooty to Nellore on Monday. She returned to Kamareddy on Wednesday with her son.

Speaking to media, Razia said that she couldn't pass days without seeing her son. "I was stopped at several check posts and later permitted after showing the pass," she said. She thanked the police for all the support rendered to her in this arduous mission (with inputs from Sakshi)
