Army deploys women soldiers near LOC in Kupwara sector

 Srinagar, August 11 (HS) In a first, the Indian army has deployed women soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara district along the line of control. This is probably for the first time in the history of the Indian Army that women have been deployed on regular security duty along with their male counterparts in the areas adjacent to the LoC. The armed women soldiers have the responsibility to search vehicles as they enter the Sadhana Pass.

Sources said that many times due to the presence of women passengers in civilian vehicles, it is very difficult for male soldiers to carry out a thorough frisking. “We are very happy while doing our duty; we are frisking women to check smuggling along the border with full alertness, ” a woman soldier told media.


  “We are here to control smuggling and doing regular frisking of women and other patrolling duties. Local people are very cooperative and we also celebrated EID with them. Apart from that, we are helping people and providing them medical facilities, ” she said.

 Another soldier said. “The women soldiers are from Assam Rifles. They are in the Indian Army on deputation and deployed at an altitude of ten thousand feet, at the top of the Sadhana Top of the LoC.
