Hyderabad | 25th November 2017
Cyberabad Police Commissioner Sandeep Sandilya, Hyderabad Police Commissioner V V Srinivasa Rao and Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat today travelled on metro trains from Miyapur to Ameerpet and Ameerpet to Nagole along with the security heads of HMRL and L&TMHRL, and inspected the security arrangements in the trains, stations and other installations.
The security equipment installed in the various locations of the metro stations, trains and depot areas were inspected by them. The functioning of the baggage scanners, CC cameras and other surveillance equipment, and the sophisticated safety and security gadgets, were also examined.
The 360 degree coverage by the CC cameras installed in the trains, platforms, concourses and ticketing areas, and the locking mechanism of the gates at the ends of the platforms which prevent intrusion into the viaduct areas and other prohibited areas were also examined and analysed.
Access control mechanisms, Door Frame Metal Detectors (DFMD), frisking gadgets (Hand Held Metal Detectors (HHMDs)), the positioning of security personnel at various locations of the stations, unobtrusive watching of the behaviour of the passengers at vantage points etc. were discussed in the brainstorming session of these senior officers.
Also, the training of some 150 police personnel deputed by the three Police Commissionerates as per the orders of DGP M Mahender Reddy has been going on in Metro Rail Bhavan for the last three days, and the three Police Commissioners addressed them and motivated them to provide friendly policing and efficient security arrangements at all the 24 stations which are getting commissioned in the next few days.
The metro security wing will be systematically built over the next one year as a well-organized unit which includes even armed components like Quick Response Teams (QRT), Bomb Disposal Squads (BDS), dog squads etc.
