In A First, 20 Women Army, Air Force Officers From Afghanistan To Be Trained In Chennai


For the first time, a group of 20 women army and air force officers from Afghanistan will be trained at the Officers’ Training Academy in Chennai. The group, who were given a celebratory send-off by the Indian ambassador in Kabul, Manpreet Vohra, will go through a rigorous training module in India. They left Kabul on Tuesday.
