Station staff to help in case of bomb scare

To beef up the security at Charbagh station, GRP has revised the bomb drill. The idea is to involve every staff present at the station to speed up the search operation in case of any bomb threat at the station. The Government Railway Police (GRP) held the first briefing of the staff on the drill on Wednesday. “We will assign the area of responsibility to vendors and sanitary staff tomorrow,” Amitabh Yash, SP Railways said.

The drill will upgrade the profile of security at the station. Till now, in case of any bomb scare, it used to take at least three hours to sanitise the station area. Station officials said though the bomb drill has been revised in the wake of August 15, it will continue even after the independence day. While the railways station staff will help in searching the bomb, security personnel will intensify checking.
