Mumbai: Nearly a year after the 26/11
terror strikes, 'Force One', an elite force formed on the
lines of National Security Guards (NSG) for the state's
security, became operational on Tuesday.
The first batch of 216 commandos of the state's own
specialised counter terrorism unit, was inducted at SRPF
training ground in suburban Goregaon here this morning.
"The commandos who have undergone rigorous training
and will be provided all infrastructure which will enable them
to be on par with international counter-terrorism units,"
Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan, who laid the
foundation stone of the Force One's headquarters, said.
A few counter-terrorism techniques were also
demonstrated by the commandos on this occasion.
