To counter the new menace of sticky bombs,as witnessed in Mondays attack on an Israeli diplomats car,the countrys elite counter-terror agency,National Security Guards (NSG),has sent out alerts to its commando squads and is also in the process of devising new security drills.
NSG DG R K Medhekar,speaking during a seminar of the 12th National Bomb Data Centre at Manesar on Wednesday,said,We have already alerted our people (guarding VVIPs). We have to really study the details about the incident and make a standard operating procedure so that everybody acts in a uniform way.
Medhekar said NSG was not involved in post-blast investigations into Mondays incident. The NSG is mandated through NBDC to examine,collate and disseminate the result of post-blasts investigations. It also maintains a database for the same. However,officials said a small team of NSG officials visited the Tughlaq Road police station to get post-blast samples from the Innova car. The car was also washed by fire brigade,but still few samples were collected, said an NSG official.
