Tripura trains police for Commonwealth Games security

Tripura is giving special training to its police personnel for Commonwealth Games security.

Agartala, Sep 14 : Tripura is giving special training to its police personnel for Commonwealth Games security.

Personnel of the Tripura State Rifles (TSR) have been going through rigorous drills in commando training, hurdle crossing, high wall crossing, climbing and jumping and slithering.

Pranay Sahaya, the Director General of Tripura Police, said TSR troopers were apt for the job because of their training, skills and age profile.

"As far as duties in the Commonwealth (Games) are concerned, I think the level of training, skill, and I believe, general response of the people of this place in terms of my boys, and overall age profile, makes them a very good material for such sort of duties," Sahaya added.

He also informed that following a request from the Home Ministry a battalion(around 1,000 troopers would take up security-related responsibilities at Games venues.

"It is one of the six states from where the forces have been drafted and amongst the northeast, for six companies, it is only Tripura state," he said.

India is expecting about two million visitors in New Delhi for the Games, as well as about 10,000 athletes from 71 teams representing 54 Commonwealth member states, which will be held from October 3 to 14.

The 12-day sporting extravaganza will be India's biggest sporting event since the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi.
