Gwalior: After the death of three CRPF
personnel due to excessive heat, the ongoing training
programme at the CRPF Training Centre here has been cancelled
by the reserve force authorities Tuesday.

It has been decided to cancel the training programme
after the tragic death of three CRPF personnel yesterday due
to heat stroke and also because of number of others falling
sick due to the severe heat conditions in the region, official
sources said.

Arrangements have been made including attaching
separate bogies in the trains to enable 400 odd CRPF
personnel to reach their respective destinations, they said.

Meanwhile, taking the incident seriously, CRPF has
formed a three-member committee headed by Additional Director
General Rakesh Jarhar to probe the matter.

The other members of the committee are Medical Service
Director A K Dhawan and Deputy Inspector General Qazmi, they
said.

The committee today visited the training centre
situated at Nayagaon and met the jawans to enquire about the
conditions prevailing in the centre.
