India’s women troopers giving Pakistan jitters


New Delhi: The deployment of the all women battalion at the India-Pakistan border in Punjab, the first of its kind, seems to be giving sleepless nights to Pakistan as it has been busy running down the security initiative.

First, a news report appeared on a prominent website that called the Border Security Force (BSF) women objectionable names. This shocked the Indian defence establishment, which, however, passed it off as propaganda. The rocket firing on the border at Wagah over the weekend was given a different twist by army headquarters.

“Pakistan is heralding the coming of our all women battalion, which is another feather in the cap of India,” quipped a defence official.
