    ANI | Srinagar(Jammu and Kashmir)[India] Jan 23, 2017 04:28 PM IST

    Ahead of this year's republic Day, Security Personnel guarding the nation's borders are in high spirits and determined to maintain peace, law and order even in sub-zero temperatures.

    Kashmir is covered in a deep sheath of snow, and the inclement weather is expected to intensify in thedays to come. Even in this freezing cold the Central Reserve Police Force are performing their duties with fervor, and being provided every facility to help them.

    CRPF PRO Kashmir Rajesh Kumar said, "Considering the hardships of winter, the planning was done before hand, whether it be the Bukharis, kerosense burners, or warmers. Keeping in mind the duty hours, it is ensured, that wherever the Jawans are accomodated, they have proper heaters and facility of warm water. If they go out for duty, there are enough coats and gloves caps."

    "Indeed in such harsh conditions to be out on duty is very tough, therefore in our camp arrangements we ensure, warm food, tea and proper medication. We also ensure they get an off once a week, so they can unwind and give proper rest to their body and minds. Recreational activities, in camps, indoor games, TV, phone facilities ahave also been arranged in the camp, since duty is in such harsh conditions, their look-after is our responsibility and we have full arrangements" he added.

    He praised the CRPF personnel for performing their duties under such severe conditions.

    CRPF personnel Alok Jain said, "Yes, the winters this time is harsh, but our duty is our top priority. We must serve the nation and ensure proper law and order. The stone pelters and other trouble makers have disturbed the peace of the state, but we are present in full form to combat it. The Government has provided us with ample facilities and our priority is our duty."

    Another CRPF personnel, Santosh Kumar said, "We do our best in balancing the cold and our duties. The conditions are tough, but our duty commands a tougher resolve. Our shift begins at 7 a.m. and stretches to 6 p.m in the evening. "

    He added,"in this weather we all have to be very cautious with our patrolling and checking of people and goods. A Phiran can consist of both a Bukhari or an explosive. so we have to see that".

    "Whenever we feel exhausted, we sit for a while and stand up again", he said

    For last five months the CRPF has played a tremendous role in maintaining law and order in the Kashmir valley.

    CISF to take over as ‘integrated unified command’ for overall airport security
    The security standards will be monitored and managed by the CISF even at those airports for which state police or state agencies are providing security
    BY: ENS ECONOMIC BUREAU | NEW DELHI |
    Published On:January 20, 2017 1:10 Am

    The Home ministry has accepted plans to make Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) the “integrated unified command” for taking care of security of airports across India, Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha said on Thursday. This means that security standards will be monitored and managed by the CISF even at those airports for which state police or state agencies are providing security.

    “…We are moving towards an (integrated) unified command for the CISF across the entire aviation system, which is a very major change that we have recommended and which the Ministry of Home Affairs has accepted,” Sinha said at a press briefing.
    “They (CISF) will therefore be able to ensure that we have consistent and sufficiently high security standards across all of the airports, and that is independent of which particular security agency is actually providing people there, but it will be under the overall command of CISF,” he said.
    Aviation Security Group of the CISF currently takes care of security of 59 out of total 98 operational airports across the country. State police and their agencies take care of security at other the airports which are not manned by the CISF personnel. The government is working on details on this plan, which will be unveiled very soon, he said.
    On June 10, 2015, after a violent incident involving employees of the AAI and the CISF at Karipur International Airport in Kozhikode, Kerala, the government held a series of discussions on better coordination among the security agencies. While the earlier proposal of having a dedicated Civil Aviation Security Force was struck down, the government has now decided to make the CISF the unified command for security all airports across the country.
    The incident at the Karipur Airport on June 10, 2015 involved a fight between Fire Service Officials of the AAI and the CISF personnel in which one CISF official was killed. There was widespread damage of airport property, the runway was blocked for some time and the airport was closed for six hours. This raised question marks over the effectiveness of the existing coordination mechanism between various agencies involved in providing security at airports.
    Sinha said the funding of CISF will also be done in a centralised manner after the new plan kicks in. “This basically means that security standards will be monitored and managed by CISF in terms of deployment staff, deployment of equipment, protocols, in terms of various emergency and response mechanisms, so all of that will be monitored and managed by the CISF, and funded in centralised way as opposed to being funded in an airport by airport way,” he said.

    CRPF may get robotic device to detect and defuse IEDs in Maoist area
    Updated: Feb 27, 2017 21:45 IST
    By HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times

    The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is planning to induct a robotic device that would assist the force to detect and defuse improvised explosive devices (IED) in Maoist-affected areas. The robot is being tested and it will go for field trials soon.

    The CRPF director-general K Durga Prasad, who is retiring on Tuesday, said the force is consulting IIT-Mumbai to ascertain the capabilities of the device.

    A senior CRPF official said the robot under test is a four-wheeled machine that can be remotely operated by patrol teams to detect and safely defuse the bomb in a secure environment.
    IEDs and hidden landmines are the weapons of choice of Maoists to inflict maximum damage on security forces.

    The force is also trying to get some special boots that could save troops from getting hit by IEDs hidden beneath the ground . They are being tested at a Hyderabad-based institute at the moment.

    There are 90,000 CRPF personnel deployed in Maoist-affected areas and the outgoing chief said a large number of rebel cadre were surrendering.

    “There is no red corridor as it was propagated earlier....the Naxals are now contained to pockets only. We have been able to penetrate their hideouts and fortress. Our teams have inflicted heavy losses on the Naxals," said Prasad.

    CISF gets best airport security award from World Quality Congress

    NEW DELHI: The security provided by Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) at Delhi airport has been awarded the 'best airport security' by the World Quality Congress(WQC).

    It is the first time that a central paramilitary force has been recognized by WQC for its standards and professionalism in providing security. Around 56 million passengers use IGIairport every year. The independent body usually awards private sector companies for their standards in providing quality service.

    The award will be given to the CISF at WQC's annual event in Mumbai on July 6.

    The achievement comes barely three months after Airport Council International's airport service quality (ASQ) rating found that security at Delhi airport was better than Heathrow, Dallas, Los Angeles, Dubai and Paris airports.

    When contacted, CISF director general O P Singh told TOI, "CISF has continuously excelled and evolved in providing security as a service and our men posted at the airports have demonstrated leadership qualities while dealing with thousands of passengers every day, taking care of threats and partnering with different stakeholders."

    Singh said ending the stamping of hand baggages of domestic travellers at Delhi and other airports, reducing wait time during checks, use of modern technology at every corner of the airport and courteous behaviour were part of CISF's excellence. "It's a proud moment for us," he added.

    Another senior CISF official said those deployed for security of the airport were often so busy that they didn't get time for food or water and it was because of their commitment that Delhi airport had not witnessed any untoward incident.

    Security at airports like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata are considered to be sensitive due to regular bombing and hijacking threats from Islamic terror outfits like al-Qaida, Islamic State, Lashkar-e-Taiba etc, apart from fears of smuggling of drugs and banned items.

    The central force secures 59 airports in India and keeps introducing new modules to keep its personnel and commandos abreast of changing modus operandi of terrorists who target such installations. Issues related to adherence to standard operating procedures vis-a-vis airport entry and exit by passengers and official staff, and further easing of security procedures for differently-abled flyers are also regularly reviewed by CISF.

    India to Purchase Modern Observation Systems to Monitor Chinese Activities

    Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) purchase advanced long-range reconnaissance and observation systems (LORROS) to strengthen vigilance.

    New Delhi (Sputnik) — Notwithstanding talks of peace and tranquility along the 2,167 mile-long border with China, India is leaving no stone unturned to ensure operational preparedness of its forces at the border. The latest in the series of purchases intended for the forces guarding the eastern border is the advanced long-range reconnaissance and observation systems (LORROS). A tender for an initial order of two LORROS has been issued.

    The intended LORROS equipped with a thermal imager will be able to detect the human at a minimum range of 10 kilometers and vehicles at a minimum distance of 20 kilometers. "The LORROS must be a rapidly deployable compact surveillance system, modular in design, portable and be tripod and mast mounted," the tender document read. The system can be installed on the ground, on vehicles or on watch towers. The specification indicates the two LORROS will be deployed in the region of temperature up to minus 40 degree Celsius and height of 5,000 meters above mean sea level.

    Sources told Sputnik that the decision was prompted by a report by India's satellite imagery expert Colonel Vinayak Bhat (retd) who claimed to have observed a large number of radars deployed near Ladakh by China's People's Liberation Army to monitor deep pockets of India.

    Meanwhile, Indian authorities including those of the ministry of Home Affairs, north eastern state and the Chief of the Indian Army reviewed the progress of ongoing roads and other infrastructure projects along the eastern border on Monday. "We have discussed the roads and other infrastructure along the border," Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat told reporters after the review meeting.

    Earlier, during bilateral talks on the sidelines of the BRICS Summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping agreed more interaction at the border and at different levels to avoid future border disputes. Both the leaders have met following the withdrawal of troops from the stand-off point of Doklam, a tri-junction of India, China and Bhutan after more than 74 days. "One of the important points made during the meeting was that peace and tranquility in the border areas was a prerequisite for the further development of our relationship," S. Jaishankar, India' foreign secretary said after the meeting.
