The team consists of a bomb detection and disposal squad (BDDS) along with sniffer dogs, trained commandos, constables of local GRP stations and traffic policemen. The drill begins with the team checking areas where private cars and taxis are parked in the premises. Police would confiscate any suspicious object found during these checks.
"This exercise has resulted in the removal of severalabandoned vehicles from the station premises, which could otherwise be used as potential carriers by terrorists," added Shirsat. The special team covers at least three stations each day.
