Subramanyam has been living alone in her flat for the last 25 years and is on local police’s list of `senior citizens requiring care and protection’. Two of her children live in the United States while another son lives in Bengaluru.
As her children could not visit her today on her 83rd birthday, Matunga police, who help her with chores such as medicine-purchase and bank transactions, decided to give her a surprise. Officials from the police station reached her house this morning with a cake and bouquet of flowers.
Subramanyam cut the cake in the presence of Deputy Commissioner of Police Ashok Dudhe, who was Zonal DCP of this area last year, and senior police inspector B M Kakad along with a police constable who regularly calls on her. The photos of the celebrations have been shared multiple times on social media.
