To maintain parking overcrowding and enhance security issues the Panchkula police e has arranged five traffic police officials at the Chandigarh railway station. The move was impelled after the Government Railway Police (GRP) ordered the Panchkula police for additional deployment of police at the city railway station two months ago.
Inspector Harnek Singh, SHO, Chandigarh railway station, GRP, said, “A request for additional deployment of police force was made by SP Railways (Manisha Chaudhary) to the Haryana Police. Following this, five traffic police officials of Haryana Police were deployed at the station for twelve-hour shifts.”
The Panchkula police management, is too shorthanded. According to officials, the current strength of the traffic police staff is not sufficient to look after the traffic load in the city.
