Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel would be deployed "immediately" at the complex of National Institute of Technology (NIT) at Langol area in Manipur's Imphal West district following an altercation between two sections of students.
The CRPF on Saturday said its entire internal security mechanism in the Kashmir valley and other places is "absolutely intact" and the force is multi-tasking to provide succour to those hit by the worst-ever floods in Jammu and Kashmir.
Central paramilitary forces may soon be granted the status of 'martyrs' as Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday discussed the issue threadbare during his visit to the headquarters of border-guarding ITBP here.
In a strict disciplinary action, the CRPF has suspended 17 of its troopers, including four junior officers, for "inaction" after an inquiry found that they deserted their martyred colleagues during a deadly Naxal ambush earlier this year in Chhattisgarh which claimed 16 lives alongwith a civilian.
Three Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) militants, including a self-styled district commander of the outfit, were today killed in an encounter with security forces in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir, police said.
CRPF, which lost 75 men in a deadly naxal ambush in Chhattisgarh`s Dantewada in 2010, unfurled the tri-colour at the same encounter spot as a mark of domination of the area on the occasion of the Independence Day.
A CRPF driver who saved the lives of 12 of his colleagues, including his commander, in the Chakarbandha forests of Bihar during an anti-Naxal operation is one of the recipients of the gallantry medal awarded this Independence Day.
Setting a record of sorts of getting the most gallantry awards, CRPF`s lone CoBRA commando unit deployed for anti-insurgency operations in the North East was Thursday accorded as many as 15 medals for undertaking daring actions against the ultras and insurgents.
There was no violation of Standard Operating Procedure by security forces providing cover to a convoy of Congress leaders in Chhattisgarh in May last year which came under severe Naxalite attack leaving 27 dead, Rajya Sabha was informed Wednesday.
Jharkhand government has decided to intensify operation against the Maoists and ruled out any dialogue with the left-wing guerrillas in the wake of the elimination of a CRPF officer by the rebels on July 4.
