CRPF DG visits Kashmir to evaluate operational readiness

29 September, Srinagar – Sujoy Lal Thaosen, the director general of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), travelled to Kashmir on Friday to review the operational preparedness and raise the spirits of the staff members stationed in Jammu and Kashmir.

Thaosen’s trip to Kashmir follows the 20-day Kokernag firefight, which claimed the lives of two terrorists and a commanding officer, a major, a deputy superintendent of police (DSP), and a soldier while they were doing their duties.


The visit of the DG, according to CRPF representatives present, was intended to gauge operational preparedness and raise morale among CRPF members stationed in Kashmir.

The DG CRPF paid a visit to the RTC in Srinagar, which is presently located in Lethpora Pulwama, as well as a CRPF unit in south Kashmir.

DG Thaosen was joined by the Inspector General (IG) of the Kashmir Operations Sector CRPF, Gyanendra Kumar Verma, the Additional Director General (ADG) of the Jammu and Kashmir Zone CRPF, Nalin Prabhat, and the Inspector General (IG) of the Srinagar Sector CRPF, Ajay Yadav.

The trip began at the RTC, where the DG carefully examined the facilities and participated in meaningful conversations with the trainees.

The DG spoke profoundly, inspiring and motivating words that reaffirmed the CRPF’s dedication to excellence in training and operational readiness.

They then travelled to the 180th Battalion in Tral, Pulwama, where DG Thaosen received a guard of respect from CRPF members.

In a sorrowful homage to the departed troops, the DG also opened the “Shaheed Mukesh Lal Meena Barrack.”

He praised the unshakable devotion of CRPF officers and troops, commending their strong commitment to the nation’s security, at an enlightening “Sainik Sammelan,” according to a CRPF spokeswoman.

Thaosen joined the staff at “Badakhana” in 180 Bn for a friendly supper, capping off the tour on a positive note.

“Such moments of camaraderie strengthen the ties that characterise the power and cohesion of the CRPF.

The CRPF authorities said that Thaosen’s visit “reaffirmed the CRPF’s unflinching commitment to the security and well-being of the country. It was also a chance to thank the CRPF members stationed in the area for their commitment and sacrifices.
