Govt to accord priority to security of GMCH

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 13 - The Government has decided to accord priority to the security of the Guwahati Medical College and Hospital and the present security arrangements are being reviewed so that adequate measures can be taken up soon.

A team of senior police officers has been reviewing the security arrangements in the medical college for the past few days, while the city Police Commissioner Mukesh Agarwala himself visited the college today for a thorough review of the situation.

Talking to The Assam Tribune after reviewing the security of the medical college, Agarwala said that the State Government is concerned with the security of the medical college. He said that minor incidents keep occurring in the hospital from time to time and there is need for streamlining the security system to deal with these problems.

Agarwala said that security system is in place in the college, but with the rising number of patients and change of time, there is a need for further streamlining the same. He will submit a report to the Government recommending short and long term measures required to streamline the security system shortly.

Though a police station is functioning from Bhangagarh, Agarwala said that the station is not for the medical college exclusively and it has to look into the entire area. However, he said that police personnel are deployed in the medical college, while the college authorities have also engaged personnel from the private security agencies.
