Worst victims of terror by radical, extremist and divisive forces are unsuspecting and innocent civilians belonging to different walks of life. The recent manifestations of terror in different parts of world especially Europe where speeding vehicles ploughed through streets teeming with civilians were largely unheard earlier. It has put the onus not only on Security Forces but also the society at large to fight it as a collective responsibility.
National Security Guard (NSG), being a Federal Contingency Force to counter terror activities in the country has embarked upon a very pertinent and contemporary mission to spread awareness in our huge populace to fight this ghastly menace with all our means and resources effectively synergized.
In this endeavor, a group of 32 NSG riders have undertaken a Bike expedition traversing close to 7000 Kms in 40 days period in different parts of the Country. Expedition started on September 7 from NSG HQ in Delhi. During the course of expedition the NSG riders have covered major metros like Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chennai. At all these places NSG in collaboration with state police and other public institutions have organized different events to generate awareness amongst population. Response to all these events has been highly encouraging. Expedition will culminate at Manesar, Gurgram (Harayana) on October 16 celebrated as Raising Day of NSG.
Major General N Srinivas Rao, General Officer Commanding (GOC), Telangana and Andhra Sub Area (TASA) flagged in Motorcycle expedition at NSG Hub in Secunderabad today.
The GOC felicitated the riders and appreciated the objectives of the expedition terming it as a very pertinent issue concerned with our national security.
To counter urban terrorism, NSG and OCTOPUS, the special Force of Telangana State will jointly organize a program to generate awareness in the public and to sensitize about their role against terrorism at Prasads IMAX, Khairatabad, Hyderabad on 25th September at 6 PM. NSG and OCTOPUS are also expected to demonstrate their combat skills during the event and it is open to the public. (INN)
