To take on rioters and protesters, the UT police will soon buy two new anti-riot (vajra vans) vehicles. The new vehicles will be fitted with multi-shell launchers and other advanced technology. The vehicles, according to the police officials, will help the police force to keep up vigil and protection in case of riots or big protests.
The UT police force has only one anti-riot vehicle at present. And it is not sufficient as it a routine to handle the protestors coming from Punjab side and blocking the traffic and roads at the entry points in the city. The purchasing committee has also floated tenders and invited bids for the vehicles. The police have demanded that the the vehicles should be fitted with high quality multiple shell launcher having seven barrels.
The high quality MTSL is capable of operating through electric as well as mechanical means. The vehicles will also be fitted with soundless generators, fire extinguishers, fans, LED lights, revolving flood lights and portable stretchers. The police officials said that the force needed the vehicles as it is not possible to handle the crowds and protestors, adding that the police force has only one Vajra vehicle which is mostly occupied in the protest at the Punjab border.

The vehicles are also a requirement of the police as the city witnesses many rallies and other political functions. “Now, there are elections in Punjab. So, there are many protests on the borders. Sometimes protesters try to enter the city from three or four places which makes our job tough as vajra vehilces are required at all the protests to disperse the crowds so that they don’t harm public property,” added an official. The officials said that the vehicles will be purchased soon and inducted in the force.
