Delhi Police launches facilitation kiosk at T3
Snatching or theft incidents are on the rise in New Delhi’s IGI airport, a major hassle for around 2 lakh travelers using its services on a daily basis. To help these victims of such crimes, Delhi Police has set up a kiosk at Terminal 3.
Flyers can book e-FIRs, get stolen vehicle searches conducted, report economic and cyber offences and also apply for police clearance certificate and character certificates at these kiosks rather than moving out to search for the nearest police station. Lieutenant governor Anil Baijal and police commissioner Amulya Patnaik were present at the opening ceremony.
The kiosk will be set up at the busiest spot in the terminal, and will work round the clock. Flyers at the busiest spot in Terminal 3 and will be manned 24X7. Similar kiosks are planned at terminals 1 and 2 as well.
In addition, the Delhi Police has also launched its Prahari scheme, which is a community policing initiative that will actively involve private security guards and chowkidars. It has roped in 600 praharis from 11 hotels and 3 commercial centres of Aerocity and other institutions in the airport complex and trained them in self-defense.
These guards will act as the eyes and ears of the police in pre-assigned areas. They will be entrusted with checking and frisking activities, keeping a watch on suspicious elements, gathering and sharing information.
