CRPF considering induction of women in CoBRA commando battalions’: DG

The CRPF is mulling induction of women personnel in its specialized jungle warfare commando force CoBRA, force chief A P Maheshwari said on Thursday.

Ten Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA) units with over 12,000 personnel were raised under the CRPF in 2009 for undertaking intelligence-based jungle warfare operations.

"We are favorably considering inducting women in the CoBRA," Maheshwari said.

The majority of CoBRA teams are deployed in various Naxal violence affected states and a few are based in the northeastern states under counter-insurgency operations.

Troops inducted in CoBRA units have to meet tough mental and physical parameters.
