But before that a small primer on CRPF.

What is CRPF:
CPF is a paramilitary security force under Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India. It was formed as “Crown Representative's Police” on 27 July 1939 which was later renamed as Central Reserve Police Force after independence on 28 December 1949.

The main role of CRPF's is assisting the State/Union Territories in police operations to maintain law and order and contain insurgency. It is also operating abroad as part of United Nations peacekeeping missions.

The CRPF is headed by a Director General and is divided into ten administrative sectors, each headed by an Inspector General. Each Sector consists of one or more administrative and/or Operational Ranges, headed by an officer of the rank of Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police. There are 210 CRPF battalions of approximately 720 constables each. Each battalion is commanded by an officer designated as Commandant, and consists of seven CRPF companies, each comprising of 135 Men. Each company is headed by an Assistant Commandant. The Home Ministry is planning to increase the strength of the force by adding 35 more battalions (30,000 personnel approx.) in the coming years.
