One of the strongest weapons that the naxals have on them are women. Very often it is the women who enter into the villages and interact with other women for a variety of reasons including intelligence gathering.
It is often said that women in the naxal camps play an important role in the battle. In this context, it was a brilliant move to deploy 560 women commandos in anti naxal operations.
The decision was taken keeping in mind the requirements in the naxal infested belts. The batch which passed out of the CRPF’s Ajmer training centre is battle ready and has been trained to combat the naxals.
