CRPF internal reports indicate lack of training, facilities

New Delhi, Apr 12 (PTI) Internal reports of the CRPF, which has just lost 75 personnel in the Maoists attack in Dantewada, say the force's field commanders had pointed out lack of training, work pressure and communication gaps as some reasons for losses in operations.

As per the reports, senior officers were of the view that non-availability of sufficient firing range, lack of shooting practice were some of the reasons for more casualties of CRPF personnel during operations.

The reports, prepared by the force's field commanders after a series of meetings, also mentions a senior officer who looks after training expressing his unhappiness over the kind of training.

He said the normal PT/Parades are not getting due importance in Battalions or Group Centres, which he felt affects the turn-out and training aspect of men.
