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.
Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office V. Narayanasamy told the Rajya Sabha that the system will be set up in more than 800 police stations in the country with the technical support from Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC).
"The radiation detection systems installed in a mobile platform will have the capability to search and detect gamma emitting radionuclides," he said.
"The mobile radiation detection vehicles are intended to help the police forces to detect any inadvertent presence of radioactivity in public domain. This system will also act as a deterrent for unauthorised usage of radioactive materials," he added.
