To defend the ‘Bharat Mata’, hundreds of Bajrang Dal members have taken up army-style training at a camp in Noida.

The ‘training module’ includes martial arts, hurdle jumping, airgun firing, rope climbing and use of swords and sticks during a combat situation.

The camp is being organised at Saraswati Shishu Mandir, a school run by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Nearly 400 members from 16 districts of Uttar Pradesh have gathered at the Saraswati Shishu Mandir in Noida for the training session. (Sunil Ghosh/HT Photo)
