Police to write to Delhi Metro over security lapse

New Delhi, April 13 (IANS) Delhi Police will be formally writing to Delhi Metro about the security lapse that led to a Rs.12 lakh robbery at a station, a senior officer said on Wednesday.

“We will write to DMRC about the security lapses in the metro premises,” Joint Commissioner of Police M.K. Meena told the media on Wednesday.

Two young men who had partially covered their faces entered the Rajendra Place metro station on the morning of April 11 and robbed Rs.12 lakh from the station control room after stabbing a Metro employee.

Meena said one of the criminals entered the station by hiding a small knife in his socks.

Both have been arrested. Police say they have recovered Rs.10.55 lakh.

Delhi Police handles crime cases in Delhi metro premises but its internal security is with the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).

Delhi Police had earlier urged the central government to hand over the entire metro security to it.
