36 women from northeast to form Delhi’s terror shield
NEW DELHI: Delhi will be the first police force in the country to have an all-women SWAT team. Home minister Rajnath Singh will formally induct the unit in Delhi Police on Friday.
Trained by specialists from India and abroad, 36 women constables from northeastern states have been inducted into the squad after rigorous, 15-month training. It is the brainchild of police commissioner Amulya Patnaik.
“These women are second to none when it comes to handling terror strikes and hostage crises in urban areas. In fact, they were rated better than their male counterparts by their trainers at Police Training College in Jharoda Kn,” Patnaik said.
The formation of this team is being considered a big achievement as most western countries do not have all-women SWAT teams due to the kind of training required to become one.
The mamum numbers of members (13) are from Assam and five each from A Pradesh, Sikkim and Manipur. They are trained in the Israeli Krav Maga, an unarmed combat style, and equipped with MP5 submachine guns and Glock 21 pistols.
These commandos will be stationed at strategic locations in central and south Delhi.
Amids intel inputs of women fidayeens planning to target the capital, this all-women unit would helm the security apparatus around Red Fort and India Gate as well.
Many of them would be posted in anti-terror vans called Parakram.
The women are trained to handle challenges unique to the capital—like climbing multi-storey buildings or carrying out hostage rescue operations at hels, buses or metro.
The idea of an all-women SWAT team germinated when 41 newly-inducted policewomen had completed a four-month commando training.
To minimise the problem of language, an instructor from the northeast has also been included in the training team.
“They have undergone a rigorous training of 15 months as ag inst 12 months for general duty male constables. They further honed their skills at NSG Centre, Manesar.
They are experts at unarmed combat, ambush and counter ambush, jungle operation, urban operation which includes building interventions, vehicle/bus intervention and VVIP security. They have also been imparted basic knowledge of explosives and IEDs apart from being trained to use a wide array of wons,” DCP (Special Cell) Pramod Kushwaha said.
“Experts at abseiling and scaling, they can spring from deep sleep to action, fully armed, within a minute of an rm. Not only have they mixed well with personnel from other parts of the country, there is an zing mix of cultures on display at the academy at present,” said a trainer.

Bravo... This is called appropriate utilization of skills and strength...NE girls are really very strong and courageous.
laudable. very positive step. well done
North eastern women are strongest. We are proud of you for taking this challenging job to prect our mother land.
OK... They can use their machine guns ag inst uneducated Bongladeshis in Delhi who are always harassing the northeastern girls.
Yes. North eastern women are stronger and fitter than women from other parts of india .. its in their genetics. Good to see them taking up jobs like this .
Women empowerment at its best.
Men and women from the NE and Gurkhas are strong and fearless and have served the country admirably in the security forces. NE men and women are also sports champions and won medals for India in the recent past.

As an Israeli, I am extremely happy these women have been trained in Krav Maga, an Israeli army military self-defense and fighting sy em developed for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Israeli security forces. Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extreme efficiency. Wish these women all the best. BEWARE INDIANS -- ISLAMIC (MUSLIM) TERRORISTS are trying very hard to subvert your nation''s security by ho to conduct te rort attack during your Independence Day.
social status of women in NE is always very High compared to Mainland India. neither Dowry is compulsory nor we keep Our women out of any family decision making. that is why we are producing more Hima Das or Mary Kom dispite the lack of proper infrastructure.
与印度大陆相比，东北邦女性的社会地位一直很高。嫁妆也不是必须的，我们也不把女性排除在家庭决策之外。这就是为什么我们这能培养出更多像Hima Das（印度女运动员）或Mary Kom（印度女拳击手）这样优秀的女子，尽管这里缺乏适当的基础设施。
applause to these women...proud of them

Delhi and indiaa please behave and start Respecting North East people...............
Why revealing what kinds of won they carry ? why making them vulnerable ? There should be some sort of restrictions on news channels to not disclose this kind of sensitive informations.
Well, India needs to develop a strong squad equivalent to Mozzad squad of Israel ! And just with few hundred well trained such personnel, nation can combat any sort of threats from within ! What is more needed is an intelligence unit that keeps alert all the time to gather all sort of disturbing forces move and plans in know.
NE girls are tough unlike South Delhi girls.
Proud of you sisters from North-East India. Good initiative by Patnaik Sir.
