Develop tech to fight terrorism, says Prez
President Pratibha Patil, speaking at the 46th convocation ceremony of IIT-Bombay on Friday, called on engineers of premier Indian institutes to develop modern equipment to combat terror.
Two Indian cities, Bangalore and Ahmedabad, have been victims of terror in the very recent past and the President’s speech-without mentioning these two cities-referred to the threat India is being forced to live with.
Patil said: “With the rise in incidents of terrorism in the country, our security apparatus needs better equipment and technology as the nation fights terrorism and crime.”
IIT-B officials later said they were doing their bit-IPS officials attend a course on ‘The Role of Technology in Crime and Crime Prevention’ at the Powai campus every year-but Patil stressed that this area needed more attention.
