There are some workable solutions in my mind which if implemented will considerably contribute to curbing the terror menace in financial hubs of our country.
1. Installing NSG Commando pickets at all the sensitive locations of the city with at least two commandos posted at every picket with sophisticated weaponry like electronic metal detectors and GPS devices.
2. 24×7 monitoring of the city by commissioning control rooms equipped with latest surveillance gadgets at the top of strategic high rise buildings, airports and railway stations in the city.
3. Deploying the railway protection force officials in local trains equipped with sophisticated metal detectors and trained in diffusing live bombs.
4. A cosmopolitan like Mumbai can only survive the vicious terror attacks if the police officers are motivated enough to serve the country like our jawans at the border areas.
You don’t expect a tired and weary cop holding a primitive gun, working at a meager salary of Rs.10000/- to be a freedom fighter willing to fall in the line of duty.
I fail to understand why the modernization of police force is such a Herculean task for the government of India? Crores are wasted by bureaucrats and the government departments every year on projects which fail to make life easier for the citizens, but when it comes to motivating the police force everyone backtracks.
