A contingent of 500 women👩 have been been trained and commissioned into the Indo Tibetan Border Police👮 today in Panchkula. They will become the first 'Mahila' squad to be posted to the high altitude posts🎉 along the India-China border. They had undergone 44 weeks of training👌 in battle craft and mountain survival🏔. They will be sent to the border areas for acclimatisation before being posted on duty to the ITBP posts👍 along the Line of Actual Control(LAC). This is the first time 🇮🇳 are posting women👩 to the front line - that too one of the most arduous and harsh terrains😯. ITBP is planning to have at least 40% women soldiers in these forward posts👍.
