An all-women SWAT team has been formed as a terror shield in Delhi which will be the first police force in the country to achieve this feat.

Trained by specialists from India and abroad, 36 women constables from northeastern states have been inducted into the squad after rigorous, 15-month training.

The maximum numbers of members (13) are from Assam and five each from Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim and Manipur. They are trained in the Israeli Krav Maga, an unarmed combat style, and equipped with MP5 submachine guns and Glock 21 pistols.

It is the brainchild of police commissioner Amulya Patnaik “These women are second to none when it comes to handling terror strikes and hostage crises in urban areas. Home minister Rajnath Singh will formally induct the unit in Delhi Police on Friday.”

“Not only have they mixed well with personnel from other parts of the country, there is an amazing mix of cultures on display at the academy at present,” said a trainer.

They further honed their skills at NSG Centre, Manesar. They are experts at unarmed combat, ambush and counter ambush, jungle operation, urban operation which includes building interventions, vehicle/bus intervention and VVIP security.
