New Delhi: If you are looking for help while travelling in Metro trains, don't worry as schoolchildren are coming to your rescue.
The CISF unit at Delhi Metro has been holding special sessions for students to use them as the force's eyes and ears in case of emergency as well as make them aware about discipline in trains.
Senior officers said that during the awareness programmes, the force has educated over 2,000 students from a dozen schools about the practical knowledge of X-ray machines, baggage checking, frisking and prohibited items.
children were also made familiar with the emergency exits at stations so that they can lead passengers to a safer place. They were also explained how the dog and bomb squads function. CISF said that the students were also briefed about the security and safety features and provisions available inside the trains.
"The training and sensitisation programmes were arranged to teach students about security, safety, Dos and Don'ts and etiquette to be followed while travelling in Delhi Metro. This will help us ensure a better system and stricter security as these students will be our eyes and ears," said Manjit Singh, deputy commandant and PRO, CISF.
Singh added that the students were curious about the technology being used by the force. They also wanted to find out how a person can keep himself and his co-passengers safe during an emergency. Senior officers addressed their queries and asked the students to spread the information.
