Ahmedabad Police on Sunday launched the Thrill Addict program in the city’s Thaltej area to promote the ‘Fit India’ campaign and adopt a healthy lifestyle by abstaining from drug abuse.
The event was part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, which celebrates 75 years of independence. Live stunts were performed during the event by commandos of National Security Guard (NSG) and Chetak commando force of state police.
“This is the first phase of demonstration by our Chetak forces, who today displayed their capabilities in parallel with the national force of NSG. The core of his excellence lies in the fitness that the youth should learn from him. The next phase will be conducted at the Sabarmati riverfront,” said Ahmedabad city police commissioner, Sanjay Srivastava.
He discouraged drug use and encouraged the younger generation to become “addicted” to the thrill that comes from living a healthy life rather than the drug itself.

On this occasion, Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and Minister of State for Home Harsh Sanghvi gave their messages through letters.
“Youth should not only study but also give some time to physical activities. Through today’s performance by our national and state forces, we try to encourage our youth to take part in such adventurous activities And spread awareness about our anti-terrorist forces and their importance,” the CM said.
Taking inspiration from the security forces, Sanghvi asked the youth to stay away from drugs and stay fit.
This was the first time the NSG displayed its skills in the city. During the live stunt, the commando force performed four types of rappelling – long ceiling rappelling, wall walk rappelling, surprise rappelling and head down rappelling.
