According to sources, the new technology will be purchased at a cost of Rs. 7 crore.

This purchase will be made under the police modernization programme.

The new system will be operated by a single person through remote control. A robot will go closer to bomb and supply data on its intensity. A container filled with water in a vehicle will form another part of total system. Once defused, a robot will throw the bomb in this container.

The state government has given permission to purchase this TCV unit. Once it is ordered, the bomb disposal squad jawans will be trained for its effective use.
