Prajjawala Body Protector
Prajjawala is a body protector specially designed for women police officers. This type of body protector was made for CRPF women jawans. Taking lessons from the Vikru incident, the women police officers of Uttar Pradesh will use it for the first time. In the first phase, demand for 3000 body protectors has been sent. This order is to be completed by March.
Earlier, female and male police workers were using the same body protector. The body protector that was being used earlier has 26 parts. But now, a different body protector has been designed for women according to their physical appearance. It has been named Prajjawala because it is meant for women police personnel. There will be protection from paws to head.
The old joint body protector was made by simply applying khaki cloth over the fibre sheet and foam. But Prajjawala was made to make special fibre moulding sheets and fibres. Its colour will be dark blue. Like a cricket kit, it will have about 20 parts. It will secure from the front and back of the body from the toes to the neck. A helmet will also have to be worn separately to protect the head.
The fibres and moulding sheets will protect the body from being struck by poles, rods, bricks, stones, etc. The unique protective cover uses mesh fabric to absorb sweat and let the air through on the inner surface. It is water and acid-proof. Work is underway to make a bulletproof body protector. According to the information, due to more grinding in the body protector of men, its weight is up to 6 kg. The security cover for the same women police personnel is about 5 kg. It will also be easy to carry. See also, Savitribai Phule: First Woman Teacher In India
