Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Aparna Kumar has become the first civil servant to scale the highest peak in North America, Mount Denali.
Mount Denali in North America has a summit elevation of 20,310 feet above sea level which Aparna Kumar had scaled. She has also completed her 7th summit in the “7 Summits” challenge. She has, hence, become the first civil servant and IPS officer to achieve the feat.

She is the first civil servant and IPS officer to achieve this rare feat,” the ITBP tweeted from their official account.
Aparna Kumar has to her credit that she also became the first woman IPS DIG and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) officer to successfully complete the South Pole expedition.
