Preparing to deal with Taliban threats : Special training to security forces, government alert amid nefarious plans of Pakistan
The government has ordered fresh training of border guards and armed police to thwart Pakistan's nefarious plan to thwart unrest by Islamist extremists taking power in Afghanistan and then sending the Taliban to Jammu and Kashmir. The central security establishment has asked the security forces to be prepared on the same lines to curb a possible Taliban insurgency in the Valley.
The central security establishment has said that militants' occupation of Afghanistan last month could have a serious impact on India's security situation. In view of this, security forces and their intelligence system have been asked to upgrade according to strategy and war policy. An official says that the change in the new geopolitical situation in Central and South Asia will have a serious impact on security in India's borders and interiors. The guidelines issued by the security establishment a few days ago also feared that there may be an increase in infiltration from Pakistan through the open border of the western and eastern parts of India. Foreign fighters can also be fielded in this.
The central security forces and its intelligence wing have acknowledged that there has been a stir in the neighboring country after the Taliban took over Afghanistan. A senior official said that there is a need to change the existing border management of the BSF, SSB, and CRPF and Jammu and Kashmir Police deployed in counter-terrorism duty guarding the border. The war policy will have to be upgraded in view of the mannerisms of the Taliban fighters.
Instructions given to central forces and state police
The central security forces and state police have been directed to train officers and jawans in multi-level training centers and academies, the official said. He said that the security forces are being prepared on the same lines as the Taliban in Afghanistan and that region is equipped with complete training, intelligence, and combat skills. Apart from this, special cases are being studied, which have been carried out in that country.
The last soldier standing on the border also needs to know the history of the Taliban
The official said that it is very important that even the last jawan standing at the border on the border is aware of the history of the Taliban. Another officer posted in the Department of Training Management said that the top commander of the army has a lot of knowledge about Afghanistan and the Taliban, but they prepare contingents of soldiers from the security forces or constables for the war, so they are called the Taliban. Should be well informed about.
The understanding of the IED of the soldiers will also be increased
During the training of the jawans, information about advanced explosive devices (IEDs) and VBIEDs installed in vehicles will be further enhanced, the officials said. He said that there is a constant threat of IEDs for the security forces everywhere. Be it an anti-Naxal operation or an anti-terrorist operation.
