CRPF will deploy women commandos in Kashmir valleyThe Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is very simple. The stone-pelters would assist the terrorists and cause obstruction to Army operations against the terrorists. Whenever CRPF used to take action against the stone-pelters, the previous State Government would stop operations and release the stone-pelters. To further minimize action against the stone-pelters, women were/are being used in stone-pelting because they knew very well that Army or CRPF would not fire bullets/pellets against those women.
Now Jammu & Kashmir is under Governor's rule. The equation has drastically changed. Army operation has intensified. Stone-pelters won't be allowed to go scot-free. Further steps are being taken. One such step is the decision of CRPF to deploy women commandos in Kashmir valley. These women commandos would take care of women stone-pelters.
The women commandos of CRPF are already operating in the Maoist-infested areas successfully. They will again achieve success against women stone-pelters in the valley. I welcome this strategic decision of CRPF.
