Next time you visit a railway station, be careful not to leave your baggage unattended for a long time in order to avoid any inconvenience and face some ‘hard questions’ from the police.

The Central Railway (CR) has recently tied up with Nalco, a TATA subsidiary company, for installing specially concealed cameras which can detect and zoom on any baggage lying unattended beyond a decided time limit.
Railway officials said the installation work has already started in September is expected to be completed within the next seven months.
“The camera will zoom on the unattended object, so that the railway police personnel can just zero on it. Then the copscan scan it” VA Malegaonkar, chief public relation officer (CR), said.
Officials said apart from the unattended baggage, the cameras will also be fed with data of the wanted criminals. The moment the wanted criminal is captured on the screen, an alarm will be raised. “The data of the criminals will be compiled into the system along with the assistance of the city police” said a senior official. 
The Railway Protection Force (RPF) will be inducting eight more sniffer dogs into their squad on Wednesday. The RPF already has 17 sniffer dogs.
