For the first time, the Indian Army has deployed 'rifle women' along the LoC between India and Pakistan in J&K on national security duty. This is probably for the first time in the history of the Indian Army that women have been deployed on regular security duty along with their male counterparts in the areas adjacent to the LoC. These women soldiers are from the Assam Rifles and have entered the Indian Army on deputation.
