Kashmir cops complete four-week combat training

Over four hundred policemen from Jammu and Kashmir completed a four-week combat training by the Indian Army here on Monday.

Bhadraba (J-K), May 7 : Over four hundred policemen from Jammu and Kashmir completed a four-week combat training by the Indian Army here on Monday.

Over 25 army instructors trained the cops in several areas like patrolling, ambush, advanced firing techniques, buddy pair training, and IED (Improvised Explosive Device) management among various other things.

The training module was designed keeping possible anti-terrorism operations in mind.

"These are days of militancy in the region. We need to combat militants while ensuring civilians are not caught in the crossfire. We are finishing today a 28-day course. We were trained in various aspects of handling field- situations, especially how to make militants surrender and in interrogation practices," said Mohinder Singh, Constable, Jammu and Kashmir Armed Police.

Army officials said special emphasis was laid on advanced shooting techniques, especially on reflex firing.

"We concentrated especially on their training aspect. We gave them training in reflex fire. Armies world over take four seconds between spotting the target and engaging it. We showed them how the reflex firing technique can be used to bring down the enemy in just one second," said Colonel S.K. Singh, one of the trainers.
