Over 350 inducted in BSF as constables
Srinagar: Over 350 fresh recruits were on Friday inducted as constables in Border Security Force (BSF), after the Passing Out Parade held at its training centre in Humhama on outskirts of the city.
Besides the regular training of 38 weeks, the 365 cadets were given training in counter-insurgency, anti-terrorism, commando operations, field engineering, field craft and minor tactics.
The recruits included 3 post-graduates and 113 graduates.
The parade was attended by Jammu and Kashmir Minister for Technical Education, Youth Services and Sports and Medical Education RS Chib.
Addressing the recruits, Chib said the BSF has always played a big role at the International Border and has helped in maintaining law and order in the country whenever required.
The minister said BSF deserves special appreciation for giving a new direction to the "misguided" youth who were misled by the neighbouring country, by inducting them into the force.
About 2,000 local youth, including surrendered militants, were among the 12,981 recruits trained at the centre.
The centre was established on June 10, 1990, to impart basic training to recruits and cater to the training needs of the force in Kashmir.
