Heritage police station to get boom barrier

Delhi's Tuglaq Road police station, which recently got the heritage tag, will soon add another first -- a boom barrier to regulate entry of vehicles.
As of now, no police station in the city has boom barriers installed.
"We have floated a tender for installing boom barrier in Tuglaq Road police station. No other police facilities in the city have this. We expect to install it by October," a senior police official said.
A boom barrier is a bar or pole pivoted to allow the boom to block vehicular access through a controlled point.
Tuglaq Road police station, located in a VVIP area of the capital, recently got a face-lift after authorities conferred heritage status to the building.
The cases of murder of Mahatma Gandhi and Indira Gandhi were registered in this police station, which was established in 1941.
