Mumbai, Jan 7 (Washington Bangla Radio) - In the dusty wilderness of middle India where corrupt politicians and criminal rule, the system is manipulated so that a female IPS officer Abha Mathur (Priyanka Chopra) is sent to oversee law and order. The expectation is Mathur, due to her gender, is inherently a soft cop incapable of causing much worry for the mafia and their henchmen. Prakash Jha's "Jai Gangaajal" reveals the folly of this assumption, much to the glee of India's venerable lady cops at the 7th National Conference Of Women In Police inaugurated by India's  Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh at Central Reserve Police Force Academy, Gurgaon.
