With the Lok Sabha elections round the corner, the city police conducted a surprise check at the railway station this evening.The station house officer of Division No. 1 constituted four teams with 60 police personnel to search the trains, platforms and surrounding areas.
The SHO, Jatinderpal Singh, said, “As the elections are round the corner, senior police officials have instructed us to conduct regular check public places for anti-social elements. We checked the area and frisked suspected persons.”
Contrary to the claims, however, many entry points to the railway station were left unmanned during the inspection.
