Bathinda, January 13

Railway Police Force (RPF) post in-charge and city railway station superintendent conducted a meeting with vendors and railway parking contractors regarding security arrangements ahead of the Republic Day.

Ramesh Chand, post in-charge, RPF, said, “We have deployed an additional force at the station to keep a check on any untoward incident. But, to ensure security at the city railway station, we have directed them to immediately inform us if they find any suspicious element on the city railway station premises.”

He further said it was not the duty of only police personnel to keep a check on any suspicious element. People working here and even people who commute from the city railway station have the responsibility to inform RPF personnel or railway employees regarding any suspicious element.

Station Superintendent Ramswaroop Meena said, “We have made flexes in which the RPF, the GRP and station in-charge contact numbers are displayed, so that anyone can call them at any point of time.”

He further stated that they would again conduct a meeting with the GRP, RPF and station in-charges for the further course of action regarding the security arrangements.

Meanwhile, vendors at the city railway station and city residents appreciated the efforts of railway police and employees for ensuring security arrangements at the city railway station ahead of the Republic Day.

Ram Das, a vendor, said, “It is a good move on the part of higher officials to consider people like us, who are working at the ground level to pass on relevant information regarding suspicious elements.”
