JAMMU: Nearly 6000 girl students will be imparted self-defence training in the coming days in bordering Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir.

''Six-thousand girl students across the border district are all set to receive self-defence training, the schedule for which was finalised on Saturday in a meeting,'' Deputy Commissioner of Rajouri Shahid Iqbal here said.

He said the self-defence training, aimed to equip girl students up to the age of 18 years with basic self-defence techniques in one of the martial art forms of Taekwondo and Judo, will be imparted to 6000 girls at 30 different venues, two in each Education Zone of the district, during the current financial year.

''Two-hundred girl students studying in standards 9th-12th will be trained in self-defence techniques at each venue by the trainers,'' he added.

Rs 13 lakh has been earmarked for self-defence training under the RMSA, which includes transportation charges and refreshment for the participants.

The DC said apart from training, the girl students should be made aware about various types of crimes against them and legal entitlements.
