Educational institutions: Rangers launch software for security

KARACHI: Sindh Rangers have developed software and established a control room for surveillance of the educational institutions and other important places in Karachi to ensure their security.

Sindh Information Adviser Moula Bux Chandio, spokesman of Sindh Rangers Colonel Qaiser Aajmal Khattak and Additional IG Sindh informed this at a press conference, here on Saturday.

Colonel Khattak said Karachi had been divided into 60 zones for effective monitoring through the software. “This programme would enable us to ensure greater security of the educational institutions,” he said and adding that more than 3,000 schools had been brought under that programme so far.

According to him, there are around 15,000 schools in Karachi out of which 3,000 had been added to the programme while the remaining would also be covered subsequently.

Colonel Khattak advised the school administrations to register their schools for the software at the nearest Rangers posts in their respective areas.

He further apprised that the ambit of the software would be extended to include more places like the recreational facilities, shopping centres and media houses, among others, for the monitoring.

Speaking on the occasion, Sindh Information Advisor appreciated the initiative. “Sindh Rangers and the police have taken big strides against terrorism,” Chandio observed.
