The police are also conducting surprise checks at big malls and recently issued three warnings to two big malls in the western suburbs for not following proper security procedures.
“We are doing surprise checks at important installations and whoever is found to be negligent will get written warnings. We will also talk to the concerned departments to cancel their licences,” Dorje said.
Additional CCTV cameras have been fitted at places such as Juhu Chowpatty, Santacruz station, near Taj Lands End JW Marriott, Infinity mall and many other spots by traders and businessmen after meetings with the police. Around 78 CCTVs have been fitted near Santacruz station.
Private guards at malls, pubs and cinema halls are also being instructed on frisking. “Frisking is an important part of security check.
We are trying to use this hidden manpower to combat threats,” Dorje said.
