Excelsior Correspondent

REASI, June 4: Considering Village Defence Guards (VDGs) an invaluable asset to the department and a force multiplier for security of the region, District Police Reasi has chalked out a detailed strategy for practicing fire by the VDG members of district Reasi.
Under this schedule, range classification has been initiated at firing butt for the VDG members, who are professionally untrained but highly committed for self & community defense against terrorists.
Under this exercise, all VDG members are called at the nearest firing butts of their areas and fire practice is done after cleaning and zeroing their weapons.
VDG members are swarming on firing butts with zest and zeal and are excited to check their capabilities in firing with their .303 weapons and are welcoming this step of Reasi Police.
Considering it an important exercise for those who didn’t check their weapons and fired since long, SSP Reasi has conveyed that a schedule of one week will be helpful for nearly 5547 members including 20 women members of district Reasi who are deployed in their own villages for safety and security of the villagers.
VDG being a force Multiplier considered as first response to thwart any nefarious designs of anti national element in remote areas.
“Since VDG play a pivotal role in safety and security in the villages, to rejuvenate them, it is necessary to exercise & practice the firing by their weapons which can only be done with such exercises from time to time,” said SSP Reasi Mohita Sharma, adding that Reasi Police will conduct many other exercises with the involvement of VDG members of district Reasi in future.
