During the celebrations of 74th R-Day, an all woman marching contingent of CRPF became the topic of discussion. The force garnered special attention since it has the distinction of raising the first women armed police battalion in the world. This all woman CRPF contingent was led by Assistant commandant Poonam Gupta. She cracked the UPSC CAPF exam in 2018 with an all India rank 81. She is currently serving in the Naxal-affected area of Bihar.
