PR No. 233 Islamabad

Installation of luggage-scanning machines at major railway stations has been intensified on a instruction of Minister for Railway Khwaja Saad Rafique.

Two luggage scanners have started working at Rawalpindi Railway Station to check explosive material. One luggage scanner had been installed to check the passengers luggage while the other at cargo terminal. After going through the scanner, the luggage would have a security-clearance tag. The basic aim is to provide safe and sound atmosphere to the passengers.

11 major railway stations including Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar and Quetta would have scanners in phases.
