Commandant of the 134 battalion of the CRPF A.D. Sharma said the ducks are like family members. 

"Our jawans who have been incapacitated in our fight against the rebels look after the ducks" said the Commandant.

Leftovers of our mess become the feed of our ducks he added.

The water body in this CRPF base camp never goes dry even in the harshest of the summer said sources.

The ducks spend their night in a fortified shed protected with wire mesh to keep cats and dogs at bay.
