Army to get heavy duty scanners in J&K

india Updated: Jun 03, 2013 14:46 IST

The Indian Army is planning to procure heavy-duty scanners to enhance the security level at its various units and transit camps in Jammu and Kashmir.

Army's Northern Command Headquarters have recently floated Request for Proposal (RFP) for procurement of at least 11 heavy-duty scanners for important locations in the Northern Command Theatre, according to a senior army official.

The Heavy-Duty Baggage Scanners will enhance the security-level at Army units and transit camps at various places, the official said, adding that they are high-sensitivity scanners.

Army is running several transit camps and units in high militancy-hit areas of Jammu and Kashmir, where there is always a threat of passage of suspected explosive material.
