India’s federal counter-terrorist force NSG had trained a select group of personnel who protect Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, the chief of the Indian commando force said, according to the Press Trust of India.
In his address on the occasion of the force’s 36th Raising Day, NSG director general (additional charge) S S Deswal said the force has acquired the most modern weapons and equipments to distinguish itself as a “world class zero-error force”.
“The NSG close protection force has trained 21 personnel of Sri Lanka’s PM security division in close protection skills.
The honourable Prime Minister of Sri Lanka wrote to the honourable Indian PM and praised the training,” Deswal said. (PTI)
