CRPF will also bestow the honorary rank of Commandant on the Olympic silver medallist.
The force has moved a formal proposal in this regard to the Union Home Ministry. After getting required sanctions, Sindhu will be honoured and presented the rank badges and camouflage combat fatigues of the CRPF at a ceremonial event.
A Commandant rank in the CRPF is equivalent to the position of a Superintendent of Police (SP).
