For the first time in history, the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government has decided to hire female police commandos that are presently being trained to fight militancy in the province.
As per reports, around 35 female police commandos are undergoing training at the Nowshera police training center. Officials have said that KP Inspector General Police Nasir Durrani felt that female police commandos should be included in the force and decided to give them special training.
The same training will be given to female commandos that is imparted to elite force male members in the province and will be able to confront all kinds of challenges, including the fight against militants.
More female commandos will be trained for KP police once the first batch joins the police.
Talking to a news outlet Musarrat Bibi — a commando under training — said, “I wanted to join the group because I wanted to tell the world that women in K-P could also obtain commando training and fight terrorism.”
