The Brigade came to be nicknamed as khuftan Fakirs by the people of Srinagar city because they had been raiding the families, even on suspicion of “dissent” inside, immediately at the time of Night Prayers which in Kashmir is called Khuftan . They marched through the streets of Srinagar with mashaals, lathis, knives & axes to keep “aggressors” away from Srinagar & to ensure free movement of Indian army on the roads of Srinagar. In short they were mukhbirs
