India gets first crack special operations unit


India is boosting its firepower for more frequent surgical strikes like tactical operations and secret missions with setting up of the first-of-itskind special operations division, comprising elite commandos from all three services -Army, Navy and the Air Force.

Sources told India Today TV that a Major General rank officer from Army’s Special Forces, the Para Commandos, has been appointed to head this division which will soon start functioning. “Recruitment for tri-service special operations division is underway and soon it will have a substantial number,” said an official.

The Special Forces or the commando wings of each force work separately but the idea is to have a common pool that can train and carry out sensitive missions within and outside the country, while maintaining secrecy.

Carrying out operations across the borders, and specific antiterror missions targeting terror infrastructure will be the focus of this tri-service special force. Read More
