200 Special Commandos will be "Anti Fidayeen" certified.!! To take on Pakistani terrorists operating in J&K
A fresh batch of 200 special commandos drawn from Jammu & Kashmir police have been trained to take on fidayeen or we can say suicide attackers, following a spurt in terror attacks against security forces and official installations in the Kashmir Valley.
The 200 commandos, who received vigorous training under experts of various agencies andformer police officers at Commando Training Centre (CTC) Lethpora in south Kashmir's Pulwama district, were formally pressed in to service in a passing out parade attended by the chief minister Mehbooba Mufti last week on December 14.
The special commandos have been trained by the Army and ITBP. In the last three years, over 2,000 commandos had been trained. They are trained to clear buildings occupied by fidayeen, floor by floor, climb steep mountains and swim through rivers. They are also equipped to use scientific aid during criminal investigations and collection of intelligence from the field as well.
