Reacting to the incidents where some senior Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) officers died in the line of duty, the Director-General of the force, Anand Prakash Maheshwari on Monday said the dynamics inside the force always keep changing and there is no difference of ranks when in operational areas.
“This force’s officers lead from the front and in operational areas, there is no difference of ranks, be it a Jawan or senior officers. It is a positive thing that our officers go and lead jawans. Even after all precautions, sometimes such casualties takes place. This will not create any deterrence. We learn from every case,” DG told ANI.
He further said that the force is ready to deal with expected heavy infiltration this year, and added that CRPF is ready to deal with it, with the close coordination of local police and the Indian Army.
While speaking on the occasion of Army day, Indian Army Chief General MM Naravane said, “Around 300-400 terrorists are sitting in training camps near the border to infiltrate into the Indian territory. The number of ceasefire violations went up by 44 per cent last year, which shows the nefarious intentions of Pakistan.”
Speaking about CRPF’s and DRDO’s newly launched bike ambulance RAKSHITA, DG said it is specially designed for Naxal-affected areas.
