Hyderabad: Around 92 IPS Probationers of 70 Regular Recruits (RR) including 12 women Probationers, 11 Foreign Officers which include six from Royal Bhutan Police and five from Nepal police have completed their basic training from the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy in Hyderabad.
The passing out parade (Dikshant) will be held on Saturday at the academy in the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah. In a press conference held on Thursday, Director of the Academy Abhay said 57 from engineering, 11 from medicine, seven each from MBA and arts, five from science, two from commerce and three from other background have completed their probation. He said all the officers worked hard with dedication and commitment and completed their basic training in most unfavourable conditions such as walking for 40 kilometres carrying 10 kg load and 5 kg rifle. This time around there is no woman probationer from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The Director said that to increase the number of women IPS officers in the country, families have to break informal barriers in the society. He said since the present-day policing is relying more on the Advanced Communication Technologies they are focusing more on the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) during the basic training.
A total of six probationers have been allotted to Telangana and Andhra Pradesh cadre. Gaush Alam (B Tech, Delhi), Dr Vineeth G (MS (Ortho), Karnataka), Dr Shabrish P (MBBS, Karnataka) have been allotted to Telangana cadre and Bindu Madhav Garikapati (MCA, Telangana), V Vidhya Sagar Naidu (B Tech, Telangana) and Tuhin Sinha (LLB, Uttar Pradesh) have been allotted to Andhra Pradesh cadre.

Gaush Alam from Delhi got selected as the Best All-round IPS Probationer and also bagged the prestigious Prime Minister's Baton and Home Ministry's Revolver.
