Panvel station’s security upgraded

scannerIn the recent history, Panvel railway station has got a greater importance, due to increase in commuters and as the gateway of Konkan region. Panvel plays a role of the hub in transporting people from Mumbai, Navi Mumbai to different parts of the country. Security of such a station is important; as terrorist or such anti social activities can be carried out easily though better connectivity.

It seems recent terrorist attacks in different parts of India have an impact at Panvel railway station. Railway authorities upgraded security in the station premises by installing a high tech scanner at the entrance of main line station. It was installed on 4 May. Since Panvel has become a hub for railway passengers and an important point between the north and south regions, a huge number of commuters pass through the station.

It is always not possible to check every baggage of the passengers, so railway authorities thought of installing a scanner at the entrance which can decrease the manual screening of bags and other boxes by 50%. “There were extra scanners installed at Dadar terminus, since the passengers traffic subdued there, a scanning machine was shifted here and it is very helpful for RPF,” said a source from Panvel RPF.

With the help of this scanner, police can stop transportation of arms and ammunitions by terrorists and their henchman. Most of the passengers feel that it will give them a safe journey also a secure waiting and resting at station complex. Pravasi Sangh, an organization of railway commuters requested passengers to cooperate with the railway police to ensure the security for all.

Renith Raju, a resident of Panvel, said ‘it’s a good step taken by railway authorities to ensure the security of railway and its passenger. Commuters in Panvel railway station have increased due to recent developments and connectivity to other parts of the city. We hope that this kind of machine will reduce the amount of terrorist activities in our country.”
