Thakur, who was the first woman in India to lead the Guard of Honor for a visiting Head of State, has alleged that the IAF’s decision to deny her a permanent commission is “biased, discriminatory, arbitrary and unreasonable.”

The Armed Forces Tribunal has asked the IAF to respond in four weeks.

During his trip, Obama said that one of his “favourite things” during his trip was to “see the incredible Indian women in the armed forces, including the person who commanded the guard that greeted me when I arrived.”

It is remarkable and is a sign of great strength and progress

Thakur had then said,
It feels good that we have been able to achieve our aim of giving him a befitting Guard of Honour. I am glad that he has appreciated.
