The lady cop decided to chop her hair off after meeting a class 5 student who was battling cancer.
Speaking to a leading national daily, Aparna said, “These children go through a lot of bullying because they are bald. Apart from their illness and issues related to treatment, comments and stares from classmates can also add to their worries.”
“The cancer affected children are taunted or mocked at as they go to school after losing hair from chemotherapy. Any deed to boost their confidence would help,” she said.
