August 10, 2018: For the first time in the history of police force of India, Delhi will be the first police force in the country to have an all-women Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team.


As per reports, trained by specialists from India and abroad, all the 36 women of the team are constables from the Northeast and have been inducted into the squad after rigorous, 15-month training.
While 13 members are from Assam, 5 from Arunachal Pradesh, 5 from Sikkim, 5 from Manipur, 4 from Meghalaya, 2 from Nagaland and 1 from Mizoram and Tripura, each. 
The idea to create an all-women SWAT team was conceived by Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik. The idea of an all-women SWAT team germinated when 41 newly-inducted policewomen had had completed a four-month commando training. 
Reportedly, these women, armed with MP5 submachine guns and Glock 21 pistols, have received a 15-month specialized training of the Israeli Krav Maga- an unarmed combat style. They're also capable of climbing multi-storey buildings and carrying out rescue operations in places like hotels, metro and buses. 
Moreover, these warrior cops are experts in ambush and counter-ambush, jungle operations, urban operations and VVIP security. They also hold a basic knowledge of explosives and IEDs and are adept at using an array of weapons. Experts at abseiling and scaling, they can spring from deep sleep to action, fully armed within a minute of an alarm.
They will be posted at high-risk and strategic locations in central and south-Delhi and will also be in charge of maintaining security at India Gate & Red Fort. 
It may be mentioned that the formation of this team is being considered a big achievement as most western countries do not have all-women SWAT teams due to the kind of training required to become one.
