New Delhi, Aug 23 (IANS) The government has decided to install mobile radiation detection systems in some police vehicles in major cities to check unauthorized usage of radioactive materials, parliament was informed Thursday.

"The radiation detection systems installed in a mobile platform will have the capability to search and detect gamma emitting radionuclides," he said.
