NEW DELHI: The two martyred Garud Commandos of the Indian Air Force were part of the first batch of IAF personnel attached to the Army for anti-terror training in the wake of the Pathankot attack. Official sources said the training of the elite Garud personnel with the Army was part of a range of measures the Indian Air Force (IAF) had initiated to bolster security at all its installations after the terror attack on the Pathankot Air Force base last year.
The two squads of Garud personnel, comprising one officer and 13 commandos each, had joined the Srinagar-based Chinar Corps in August for a six month-long "live situation training", the sources said.
Kishor belonged to Nashik while Nayan was from Bihar.
The Garud commanders are tasked with protecting all critical bases and installations of the IAF across the country.
