Ghaziabad (UP), Mar 10 (ANI): The Central Reserve Security Force Director General, N. R. Das, on Tuesday said that a special unit of trained commandos is in Pakistan to protect the Indian Embassy officials working there.

The commandos are trained in unarmed combat and VIP security drills.

They will perform VIP security duties after assessing the situation there, Das said on the sidelines of CISFs 40th raising day.

Das said the role of the CISF commandos would be finalized after an assessment report is prepared.

Some of the members of the team will also perform technical support duties.

The CISF commandos had earlier protected diplomats at the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu, while the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) earlier guarded the Indian Embassy officials in Afghanistan. (ANI)
