She got Indian Police Service and is undergoing training at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, Hyderabad.

“I always wanted to be a collector. When I was in Class 8, a woman officer had come to my school. Later I was told she was the collector. I was quite impressed by her. At that time, I had decided to become a collector,” Jain told PTI.

“The place I come from is badly affected by Naxalism. People there lack basic facility like education. I want to serve the people of my state,” added Jain.

She also said that bringing development to Dantewada could be the best way to check Naxalism there.
