National Security Guard

Sept 2003, i was shooting a promo for a news channel with the the NSG, or the National Security Guard. These are the elite para military force responsible for crack commando operations, anti terrorist/ anti-hijack, and all those dramatic situations.
Their outfits have also earned them the nickname- `blackcats'

The NSG strength is around 7500 personnel

Trying my hand at the MP5-- the undisputed choice of the vast majority of law enforcement Special Response Teams and military Special Ops units throughout the world...

perched upon a wall with my camera to get my `shots', this building was stormed and the `targets' neutralised before i could count to ten.

The probation grind saps the toughest of recruits and the drop out rate is 50 - 70%

One of the hurdles in a 26-item, 780 meter obstacle course. The qualifying time is 18 minutes but experienced operators take around 9 minutes.


The first batch of women commandos is undergoing training at the NSG camp

`One shot one kill'
