CRPF’s women battalion indiatoday
The CRPF said if Maoists can have women in their ranks, why not the security forces.
The security force has created infrastructure and barracks for these women at certain locations while more such facilities will be created in due course of time.
Recently, border-guarding force Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) had declared that it will post its women personnel in full combat role in its units along the Sino-Indian border.
This is the fourth ‘mahila’ battalion of CRPF. A CRPF battalion has about 1,000 personnel.
