New Delhi, Sep 16 (UNI) Delhi Police Commissioner Y S Dadwal today said the police were undertaking several measures to strengthen security in the Capital city, including commissioning more police stations and bringing about an improvement in response time.

Further, the number of lines on Control Room telephone number 100 would be increased to provide ample opportunities to people in reporting such incidents, Mr Dadwal said at a meeting of the Delhi Cabinet to review the security situation in the city in wake of Saturday's serial blasts.

Speaking at the meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and attended by Mr Dadwal and CMD of the DMRC E Sreedharan, the Police Commissioner said it had been decided to involve RWAs, market associations and other organisations in improving the security scenario in the city and distribute pamphlets in school, colleges and hospitals.

It was reported at the meeting that security arrangements in the Delhi Metro are foolproof and DMRC has been imparting training to its employees to enhance vigilance.

Briefing mediapersons after the Cabinet meeting, Ms Dikshit said the city-government has offered its substantial cooperation in launching a forceful campaign against terror to ensure prevention of occurrence of terrorist activities. It was decided to achieve this objective through public participation.
