Bangalore Police Commissioner Instructs Banks to Deploy Security Guards Round The Clock

Raghavendra H Auradkar, the police commissioner of Bangalore, has issued a set of instructions to the banks operating in the city to install alarm systems as well as CCTV cameras in all ATMs and employ security guards round the clock for strengthening security. News sources reveal that the Bangalore police commissioner instructed banks to boost up security in their ATM kiosks after the assault on bank manager Jyothi Uday in the Corporation Bank ATM kiosk on 19th November. Just within a few days of the attack, the commissioner made it compulsory for the banks to recruit security guards and boost up security. The banks were also given an extra period of 45 days to install alarm systems and CCTV cameras. The 45 days` time limit given to the banks for following the instructions was over on Sunday.

According to an official from the Bangalore police department, around 75 percent of the banks in Bangalore had already followed the instructions issued by the police commissioner. The officer also revealed that some of the banks had talked to the police commissioner asking for more time to follow the security-related instructions.

Those banks that don`t follow the security instructions are liable to be held guilty under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code.

According to sources, the Bangalore police commissioner Raghavendra H Auradkar has asked police officials to find out the number of ATMs by 15th January that have been unable to follow the 45-day time limit allotted to them for boosting security in ATMs.
