HYDERABAD: Plans to get Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) men trained by Greyhounds, a special wing of Andhra Pradesh police fighting naxals, are still under active consideration of the Central Government.

Details were being worked out and a decision was yet to be taken in this regard, CRPF Southern Sector IGP P. Mallana Goud told reporters here on Wednesday.

CRPF, the largest paramilitary force in the world, will be raising 10 more new battalions this year, Mr. Goud said.

"Out of the seven Central police organisations, ours is the only force dealing with internal security," he said.

Earlier, Mr. Goud gave away CRPF Director-General's Discs to men and officers for outstanding work.

The recipients included Ranga Reddy Group Centre DIG Gautam Sawang.

Battalion-83, Battalion-51 and Battalion-58 secured trophies for best operations, administration and cost-effective methods respectively.
