Indian forces to tackle Chinese Army’s barbed clubs with tridents

To tackle the Chinese during violent face-offs, Non-lethal weapons have been provided to the Indian security forces deployed along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) after barbed clubs and tasers were used by the Chinese troops against the Indian forces in the Galwan valley clash.

Soon after the Galwan valley clash, a Noida based start-up firm was tasked to facilitate the Indian security forces with equipment allowing them to tackle the Chinese and a solution for the same was provided by the company in the form of non-lethal weapons inspired from the traditional Indian weapons like Trishul (Trident) of the Hindu god Shiva.

Various equipment

One of the officials from the company said that a metal road taser capable of being used for both tasing and aggressively attacking the enemy soldiers and also puncturing their bullet-proof vehicles has been developed by them with the name of Vajra which also has multiple spikes on it.

By discharging current under permissible limits, the spikes on the Vajra are capable of making an enemy soldier ineffective during hand to hand combat and face-offs which now happen very often.

Another weapon known as the Trishul was shown by the official claiming the weapon to be used for tasing along with blocking enemy vehicles for adversaries while they try to enter a restricted area. 

The company has also developed tasing equipment known as ‘Sapper Punch’ which are gloves that can be worn like a winter protection glove but can be used to give a blow or two with a current discharge to the aggressor enemy troops. The official also said that this is one of the most liked gear by the forces.

Won’t cause death

During the demonstration of the non-lethal weapons being provided to the Indian security forces, the official made it clear that the weapons cannot cause any serious injuries or death but can surely stun down the enemy troops, making them ineffective temporarily during hand to hand engagement. 

The Indian soldiers were attacked by the Chinese Army troops with tasers and barbed clubs to cause heavy injuries in the Galwan valley where for more than four decades bullets had not been fired till the previous year. 

Counter-measures 

In response to the Chinese unconventional weapons, protective gear, as well as equipment, were demanded by the Indian troops soon after the clash. 

Although, it was not revealed which Indian security forces have been provided with the non-lethal equipment.

The company made it clear that the equipment was specifically made for the Indian forces and was not meant to be sold to any private persons or the general public and shall be distributed amongst Indian soldiers and law enforcement agencies.
