Razia Begum, a teacher by profession, lives in Nizamabad district of Telengana. She was anxious about the wellbeing of her son studying medicine in Hyderabad who had been caught in lockdown.
Finding no other way out to bring her son back home, she approached the Assistant Police Commissioner, Jaipal Reddy in Bodhan, after which, she was issued a pass to travel to Hyderabad to bring her son home. Razia Begum took her Scooty and hit the road to ride around 700 kms to reach Nellore, where her son Md. Nizamuddin got stranded in the house of his friend to look after his ailing father. She was stopped at many check gates by police on duty on the way to Hyderabad, but on producing the pass issued by the Assistant Police Commissioner, they all helped and treated her well.
Razia finally reached her destination Nellore and has been successful to bring her son back and rode back home another 700 km within a span of 3 days.
