Patna: In a noble step, the Patna police has armed traffic posts at important junctures of Bihar's capital with first aid box to attend to road accident victim on the spot.

To start with first aid box has been given at five traffic posts and as many mobile regulation teams, Superintendent of Police, Traffic, Prantosh Kumar Das told a news agency today.

The five posts are -- Boring road roundabout, Tapasya complex, 46 number pillar, Hartali More and Saguna More, Das said.

Under this programme, Patna traffic police has entered into a tie-up with the Red Cross society, he added.

The box contains necessary items like cotton, bandage, antiseptic medicines among others, the Traffic SP said.

Das said the idea behind the programme is to attend to an accident victim at once without loss of time in arrival of ambulance or taking the victim to a doctor.

Such box would be placed at more and more posts in due course of time.

Lakhs of vehicles ply on roads of capital Patna daily. Due to heavy traffic rush accidents are a common feature. In many cases it has been seen that casualty turns fatal due to delay in giving medical attention to victim.
