    Feisty CRPF performing duties in Kashmir valley despite cold wave
    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.
