This year, Ahmed said, CRPF had liquidated 213 militants across the country and caught another 1,800, he said adding the casualty on CRPF side was 55.

Disclosing that there were 37 cases of suicides and two fratricides, Ahmed said they have started a ‘Sanjeevani’ programme to help the stressed personnel.

Asked about the proposed insurance programme for paramilitary personnel, he said the matter was under the consideration of the Home Ministry.

On the cancellation of recruitment process in Bihar due to “irregularities”, Ahmed said he was yet to receive the enquiry report and only after that he would be able to comment whether any CRPF official was involved in the case.

He admitted that the satisfaction level in the housing of personnel was a dismal 12.6 per cent despite best efforts.

“Welfare of our personnel has been receiving our highest attention, but we still have much more to achieve in improving their living and working conditions. We aim to achieve the target of 25 per cent satisfaction level within next five years,” he said.

The CRPF chief said the force has given training to personnel from Sri Lanka and Nepal while in the coming days it will impart training to personnel from Bahrain.
