New Delhi: To ensure greater security of women commuters, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has decided to deploy a new all-women combat group in Delhi Metro trains.
A decision in this regard was taken in view of a surge in cases of molestation at Metro police stations. The CISF made the announcement on International Yoga Day, a 'Times Of India' report
said on Wednesday.
As per reports, the all-women combat group has been especially trained to fight in narrow enclosures, like Metro trains, with multiple opponents using a combination of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali, a Filipino martial art.
Described as the "Internal Combat Group", the women demonstrated their skills in Connaught Place on Tuesday.
The 20-minute demonstration was attended by senior officers of CISF and other paramilitary forces.
CISF led the yoga session for all the forces, including NDRF, SSB, BSF, ITBP and others.
DIG CISF (DMRC) Raghubir Lal said that such a group was needed to win the confidence of women commuters and ensure safe travel for them.This group has especially been trained to handle miscreants bare-handed.
The group will also impart combat education to women so that they can defend themselves.
