A team of 25 young commandos has been trained by the central security force CISF in 'Pekiti-Tirsia Kali' (PTK), which originated decades ago in Philippines and is a close- quarter unarmed combat skill used to take on multiple opponents at one time by using obscure objects usually worn on the body. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) MD Mangu Singh on Friday commissioned the first batch of the highly motivated CISF troops after they finished their 50-day rigorous training which till now has only been imparted to the special units of the Army or NSG commandos.This is the first time such a training has been imparted to women security personnel in the country. Chaturvedi said the force, which was tasked to secure all the Delhi Metro stations, would deploy these women in civil dress as well as in uniform.
