Besides keeping a check on the intrusion of enemy forces, guarding the borders of our nation in hostile terrain and extreme weather conditions are also one of the major challenges faced by Indian soldiers. Recently, a CRPF constable was seen going about his patrolling duty in the union territory of J&K amid heavy snowfall and won praise online.

The now-viral picture was shared by Kashyap Kadagattur, Assistant Commandant at CRPF. “No, this is not Batman. He’s Constable Aijaz of CRPF performing his duty in Union Territory of J&K despite massive snowfall. Policing is a 24/7 service. CRPF means business. CRPF stands for professionalism,” he tweeted while lauding the officer for his dedication.

The season’s first snowfall has thrown life in Kashmir out of gear, with clogged roads and electricity supply snapped since last week. At least four snow-related deaths have been reported in Kashmir.

Since August 5, when the government bifurcated the erstwhile state of J&K and revoked its special status, nearly 3.5 lakh security personnel have been stationed at the Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
