She also frequently leads CRPF jawans into dangerous terror-infested regions.

She is now one of the most feared and respected officers among the Bodo-militants.

She has literally led an entire battalion into heavily armed combat areas. In just a few months, Prashkar has taken down 16 militants, arresting over 64 of them, and she's impounded tons of arms and ammunition from hostile militants.Apart from the Bodo militants, the troops have to face tough terrains and wild animals, making the entire area hostile territory. "There have been instances when we encountered elephants. We have no option but to retreat or wait for hours before moving on," said a troop member, who has taken part in a number of military operations.
