For saving lives of commuters, Delhi Police awards DMRC staffers
Among the awardees are train operators, drivers and others working with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), they said.
In another incident, a 23-year-old man, who had fallen on the tracks at Udyog Bhawan metro station on July 18, was spotted by the DMRC train operators. They stopped the train in the nick of time and the man was saved, police said.
Many such alert DMRC staffers will be rewarded under the initiative, they said.
A senior police officer said the initiative will also work as a "rapport building" exercise with the DMRC officials, who will be awarded with certificates as a token of appreciation.
"Prior to joining their assignments, they also have to appear for psychometric tests which judge their ability to react quickly," he said.
"An employee of the Delhi Police had received the Managing Directors Award for meritorious performance. We had helped the DMRC in a metro cable theft case for which our officer was rewarded on the DMRC Foundation Day on May 3," the senior police officer said.
"The SHOs of the concerned station usually maintain a record of the DMRC officials who have done something significant. Accordingly, we recognise and reward them for their work," he added.
