Aparna Kumar, who became the first woman Indian Police Service (IPS) officer and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) officer to successfully conquer the South Pole, has set her eyes on another summit.

According to an official release, the top cop is now headed to the North Pole. She will start the 178.6 kilometre-trek from Norway's Oslo on April 4.

She will also make the third attempt to scale Mount Denali in July this year.

Ms Kumar had successfully reached the South Pole on January 13 after walking 111 kilometres on the snow. She did this with 35 kilograms equipment on her back and unfurled the National and Indo-Tibetan Border Police flags at the summit.

After she scaled the South pole, several leaders including Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal and several other leaders congratulated her.

The Indo-Tibetan Border Police also shared her story on Twitter:

The police officer has previously scaled top six mountain peaks of six continents across the globe.

Ms Kumar is a 2002 batch UP Cadre IPS officer, who has been posted at the Northern Frontier Headquarters of ITBP in Dehradun.
