Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Keerthi Jalli has become an internet sensation after her pictures visiting flood-hit areas in Assam's Cachar district went viral on social media.

In the number of pictures and videos, Jalli can be seen walking barefoot through the muddled waters in the flood-affected area and interacting with locals devastated by the natural calamity.

Awanish Sharan, a 2009-batch IAS officer, shared an image of the officer posted in Assam and applauded her efforts. The picture showed Ms Jalli, with her muddied feet, smiling as she's standing in a boat alongside another woman, NDTV reported. The post has garnered over 50,000 likes so far.

In another viral video, the lady officer was heard saying to a local, "No need for clean water, give me flood water to clean my feet."

Netizens Impressed With The Gesture

Netizens have heaped praises on the IAS officer for her commitment to work and reaching out to those who have been severely affected. Some users also shared other photos of Ms Jalli, either wading through mud or walking through a slippery stretch to reach out to local people.
