Delhi police chief invites Kung Fu nuns to train girls

NEW DELHI: Delhi police commissioner B S Bassi on Friday invited the Ladakh-based ‘Drukpa Kung Fu nuns’ to train the city school girls for self-defence. The city police chief was speaking at the culmination of a 2,500 km cycle journey over 52 days by 250 Kung Fu nuns of the Ladakh-based Drukpa Order from Kathmandu to Delhi, led by the Gyalwang Drukpa, the spiritual head of the 1,000-year-old Drukpa Order based in the Himalayas. “Even though society needs to change, we will also have to strengthen young girls and women so much that they can give befitting reply to those who try to harass them. These nuns are experts in self-defence and judo-karate. So, I request you all to stay in Delhi for one year as our guests and help us in giving self-defence training to the girls of the city,” the commissioner said.
