IAF Commandos Killed In Kashmir Were Part Of Post-Pathankot Training


The two Garud commandos of the Indian Air Force (IAF) who died in a terrorist encounter in north Kashmir on Wednesday were part of a group that was undergoing Live Situation Training with the Army.

According to sources, following the terror attack at Pathankot Air Force Station in January 2016, the IAF decided to upgrade the training of its Garud commandos to be able to effectively tackle a jihadi terrorist threat and improve their security posture. As part of that plan, two squads of Garud commandos  of one officer and 13 air warriors each  were earmarked for on-the-job training with the Army.

At the Pathankot airbase in Punjab, Corporal Gursewak Singh became the first Garud to fall to terrorist bullets. The defence ministry had then ordered a review of the security of all military installations by a committee under Lt General Philip Campose (retd), and some of the recommendations of that committee are currently under implementation.
