Aiming a target and choosing her grip, this archer took her bow high up with pride as she shot the arrow. A National level Archer, Chiewelou Thele’s background in archery training has made her the best rifle shooter in her Commando batch and today she is the face of Delhi police! More power to women like Thele who set an example for young girls out there.
A campaign poster that was released by Delhi police had Thele holding an AK-47. The senior officials believed in her as she proved to be the best student in her batch.
She proudly speaks to India Times about her training in archery and states,” I had never even seen a rifle before joining the police force but I am the best female shooter of my batch and the credit goes to my archery training.”
The commandos also learn warfare techniques, such as identifying improvised explosive devices. They are armed with an AK-47 assault rifle, or an MP5 submachine gun, with at least four 30-round magazines, a Glock 17 or Glock 26 pistol, hand grenades, a wireless set, a 20-metre nylon rope, a pencil torch, a bulletproof helmet and much more!
Usually resorting to stock posters for the campaign and other purposes, for the first time ever, Delhi police used one of its own stars as the face of their poster.
Being an archer and the face of Delhi police, Thele is a true inspiration to many young girls to achieve their aspirations in life.
