Srinagar, Sept 2: With the Kashmir valley residents delirious in welcoming Shah Rukh Khan for a film shooting in Pahalgam, the task of providing proximate security has been assigned to DSP Raja Nighat Aman, a feisty lady police officer.
"In my 18 years of service, I have been in VIP security teams a number of times and I do not see the current assignment as a difficult task", says Nighat Aman.
The lady police officer has been following SRK like a shadow since the day the actor landed in the valley to shoot scenes for Yash Chopra's unnamed romantic film.
SRK was spotted shooting at Chandanwari, 16 km from Pahalgam on Saturday and the lady police officer was there. Raja Nighat Aman remains in civvies during the assignment, list mof other officers posted in the security wing, reports the Delhi tabloid Mail Today.
The state government wanted to keep Shah Rukh Khan's shooting schedule a low-key affair given the security concerns, but Nazir Bakshi, the official assigned to facilitate the shooting, let the media know about it, and that has added to Aman's troubles.
While Raja Nighat Aman is spending sleepless nights to ensure King Khan's safety, the actor is enjoying his sleep.
"Slept for 10 hours after a long time. God, I feel rested..even my bear seems fresh...." he tweeted.
Raja Nightat Aman belongs to Zachaldra village of Kupwara district and as DSP traffic in Srinagar, she once hauled up some armymen for violating rules. Her father was a Congress leader, and she joined the police force at a young age after her father's death.
