The UCCA along with Col BL Sharma (retd) has published a limited edition of a book on ACCS Close Combat methods
for sole use by Indian forces which was gifted to the Home minister & various Indian forces. This is UCCA's contribution
to the Nation and we are not accepting any reimbursement, not even the cost of production from the country.
I have been an eye witness to the steady and dedicated progress made by this enthusiastic couple Dr.
Deepak Rao and Dr.( Mrs). Seema Rao. They both were a gift to the Police Department by Shri A.V. Krishnan (IPS),
former Director General of Police, Maharashtra, way back in the early 1990s. Starting with modernization of unarmed combat,
they went charging ahead like die hard commandos, gaining new knowledge landmarks and never looked back.
Col. B.L. Sharma (retd) who was the first Commander of the elite Special Group has a vast field experience
behind him. His restless keenness to contribute to the countrys efforts in countering terror is reflected in
the making of this book.
Terrorism today has left its foot-print practically almost everywhere in the world. India in particular
is in the throes of mindless violence by a new breed of brain washed but highly dedicated new generation terrorists
who are fast acquiring an ability to strike at will. They are freely using sophisticated ieds and more commonplace
component chemicals to assemble their bombs. Their targets essentially are urban and so are their hide outs. The
terrorists are intensely trained in use of fire arms and also in unarmed combat. It was painfully experienced
by me during handling of some operations. The need therefore of new techniques of using fire arms and formation
of smaller and well trained specialized QRTs is hardly overstressed. In an urban terrorist situation speed,
reduction of collateral damage in the form of reduced or minimal civilian casualties and reduced ops duration
are need of the hour. Element of surprise and stealth along with deployment of lesser number of well trained
armed personnel do form a part of this package.
Since the war on terror is going to be a long drawn one , we need to sharpen and refine our methods
along with methods of gathering intelligence. I am sure this book would certainly be useful towards achieving
In the end I would fail in my duty if I do not place on record my grateful thanks to our Armed Forces
who with open arms received these two enthusiastic and patriotic medical professionals and encouraged them.
