TIRUCHI: The Railway Protection Force (RPF) Training Centre at Khajamalai in Tiruchi crossed a new milestone on Saturday with the first batch of 116 sub-inspector cadets passing out of its portals after a year-long training.
This was the first time that the training centre has trained a batch of sub-inspector recruits. The SI recruits underwent various training capsules including operation of AK-47 rifles. Thirty-four cadets have passed the rigorous test for deputation to the Special Protection Group (SPG).
Commending the cadets and the training centre, Ranjit Sinha, Director General, RPF, who took the salute at a colourful passing out parade, observed that the responsibilities of the RPF were increasing. “You are passing out at a time when the country is facing a challenging security environment. The Railways is a soft target, and it shall be our endeavour to thwart any attack on it. You have a big responsibility of providing effective security to passengers and the Railway property. The training provided here will help you to face the challenges,” Mr.Sinha said.
