The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on January 18 launched a specially developed 'RAKSHITA' - a bike ambulance to attend urgent evacuation needs of the security force personnel in event of a medical emergency or battle injury in Naxal affected areas. Sources claimed that these bikes will give assistance to CRPF jawans and paramedics in case of any injuries during encounters. "These bikes will be more useful in areas like Bijapur, Sukma, Dantewada etc., as it is tough for the force to take big vehicles or ambulances inside the jungle," said Director General of the Central Reserve Police Force, AP Maheshwari to ANI. The bike has been developed after the CRPF noticed a need for such bikes to reach fast on the narrow roads in tensed areas, especially in the Naxalite zones.
