Indian Army deploys ‘rifle-women’ in Ganderbal

Srinagar, July 03 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian Army has deployed women soldiers at various checkpoints in central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district.

Commanding officer of 34 Assam Rifles, RS Karakoti, told media that ‘rifle-women’ of Assam Rifles have been deployed at mobile vehicle check posts in Ganderbal.

“They have been a force multiplier and they have been bridging the gap between forces and local women. We are using them in other operations as we use our riflemen. The ‘rifle-women’ help develop a special relation between the Army and the locals,” he said.
