Delhi to have 41 Northeast women commandos to man frontline defences


New Delhi: 41 women commandos from Northeast may be the next big thing when it comes to tackle a terror strike or a hostage situation. These selected women cops would helm the security detail at Red Fort and India Gate, this Independence Day.

These women are undergoing a four-month advance commando training at Jharoda Kalan at present. They have already undergone rigorous 10-month police training and completed it with remarkably good grades. Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik is the man behind this new commando force and the training programme is being headed by O P Sharma, an ACP-rank officer.

According to special commissioner Dependra Pathak, these commandos will be posted with different units, including Parakram and SWAT. “Many of them will be posted in the anti-terror Parakram vans. As of now, there are 10 such vans and each of them has a woman commando. Fifteen more vans will be intoduced soon and these commandos will be deployed there too,” he added.
