Security in place to thwart Jaish attack on Rly stations: DG RPF

Agency News

New Delhi, Sep 16 : In the wake of the Jaish letter threatening to blow up several railways stations, DG Railway Protection Force Arun Kumar on Monday said they have made adequate security arrangements, which include putting in place a plan of action, to thwart any such attack.

Asked about a letter received by Superintendent of Rohtak railway station in Haryana on Saturday, purporting to be from terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed and which threatened to blow up 12 railway stations, including Kota, Jaipur, Rohtak, Mumbai and Bengaluru and several temples, the DG RPF said,''...for bigger stations we already have a plan of action prepared wherein, the entry and exit points of such stations which are not in much use will be ceased.''

''Recently, many CCTV cameras have been installed at railway stations. The feed of these stations is monitored regularly. Also, through artificial intelligence system, these feeds are monitored. If any similarity is found between the feeds and pictures of terrorists, then this system recognises the same and issues an alert at the earliest,'' he added. ''We would also use our newly-launched Commando for Railway Security (CORAS) if the need arises,'' the DG RPF added.
