HYDERABAD: Underlining the service of Intelligence Security Wing (ISW) personnel to protect VIPs, Director General of Police (DGP) Anurag Sharma said the ISW personnel are the quiet warriors between khakhi and the intelligence operatives.
The DGP was chief guest at the celebrations of Raising Day held at ISW premises here on Sunday. The DGP launched ISW’s logo and brochure.
Addressing the gathering, Anurag Sharma applauded the functioning of ISW in providing foolproof security to the dignitaries and expressed his gratitude to the ex-chiefs of ISW for their contribution to the organisation.

“The ISW personnel are the quiet warriors between khakhi and the intelligence operatives. Their work goes unrecognised most of the time but keeps the social and political fabric of the state stable and safe. The state government was kind enough in sanctioning 25 per cent special allowance to the personnel working in Intelligence, ISW and CID,” the DGP said.

IGP, Intelligence, Naveen Chand said that for the first time, the Raising Day of ISW was celebrated after 32 years of its inception. The Raising Day would be celebrated every year hereafter, he added.
Citing the incident of attack on Chief Minister of AP, N Chandrababu Naidu by People’s War naxalites at Alipiri in 2003, he stated that because of providing Bullet Proof car to the VIP anticipating threat to him, he survived with minor injuries.

IGP, ISW, M K Singh said they are planning to provide training to the security personnel on par with SPG personnel and requested the DGP and IGP to extend their support in their future accomplishments.
Former DGPs Swaranjit Sen, B Prasada Rao, Additional DGP, NIA, New Delhi V S K Kaumudi and six other officers who had worked as chiefs of ISW earlier and Shankar Reddy, Additional SP (Retd.) attended the function.
