NEW DELHI: Gujarat’s 22-year-old Safin Hasan, the youngest IPS officer in the country got his first career posting in Jamnagar.
He will take over the charges as Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) on December 23.
Hasan, a native of Kanodar village in Palanpur district, Gujarat cracked the coveted 2017 Union Public Services Commission exams by securing an all-India rank of 570.
In a telephonic conversation with TOI, Safin said, “I appeared again but could not clear the exam. Hence, I decided to pursue my career as an IPS officer and will use this opportunity to serve my country.”
Hasan belongs to a low-income family. His father Mustafa Hasan and mother Naseembanu both worked in a diamond unit.
After the parents lost their job, father began to work as an electrician and mother began rolling out hundreds of rotis to support family expenses.
And it was his mother’s love and sweat that Hasan dreamt of becoming an IAS officer.
