Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha on Friday said the paramilitary force Tripura State Rifles (TSR) will be deployed in urban areas of the state to maintain law and order.
The TSR has transformed itself as one of the best striking forces not only in the northeastern state but also in the various states, he said.
"We are really proud of TSR for doing excellent work not only in Tripura but also in other states of the country. From election duties to tackling insurgency to law and order duties, the force has proven its capabilities in all sorts of duties", Saha said at the passing out parade of 14th and 15th Bn TSR in West Tripura district.
"Now, we are considering deploying TSR in the urban areas to maintain law and order as the force has done tasks which were assigned to them be it insurgency or border vigil and rendering service to embassies in New Delhi", he said.

Besides, TSR is also guarding two power plants - Palatana and Manarchak. Director General of Police Amitabh Ranjan said all the 1,438 passed-out TSR jawans underwent rigorous training.
"All the jawans were given very detailed training meticulously under the guidance of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). This is for the first time, two battalions of TSR passed out together", he added.
