New Delhi, Mar 14 (UNI) In order to deal with growing extremism in far-flung areas, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has tied up with Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for a tailor-made Geographical Information System (GIS).

The GIS would help arrest activities of extremists in hilly terrain and deep forests, according to the CRPF.

The high-intensity conflict zones would now be under better control with the customised GIS solution, which would facilitate ground level observation as well as navigation with precision and speed for operational effectiveness.

This would help nab naxals and assist in exactly locating their hideouts, besides make penetration and combat more effective in interior areas, it added.
