HISTORIC EVENT AT ASSAM RIFLES TRAINING CENTRE, 868 MAHILA RECRUITS PASS OUT

In a major event at Dimapur, Nagaland, 868 new Mahila Recruits marched in perfect Rhythm and Synchronisation and passed out of the parade ground of the Assam Rifles Centre and School at Shokhuvi in Nagaland on 02 March. The occasion was the special attestation parade to mark the completion of 44 weeks of gruelling training in battle craft, weapon handling, jungle lane shooting and other specialization in Counter Insurgency operations. This POP was unique for the fact that it had only Mahila Recruits and the parade was led by Major Sita Shelke, a lady officer posted at the ARTC & S. The passing out parade was reviewed by the Brig (Dr) B D Mishra (Retd), the Hon’ble Governor of Arunachal Pradesh in the presence of Lt Gen PC Nair, AVSM, YSM, Director General Assam Rifles and other senior officers of the Indian Army and the Assam Rifles.

1971 war veteran naval officer Uttam Kumar Chakravarty said – “Northeast girls are tough both physically and mentally. They’re the perfect choice for the anti insurgency operations in the hilly terrain of Northeast.”
