Jammu: The Army is planning to procure heavy-duty scanners to enhance the security level at its various units and transit camps in Jammu and Kashmir.

Army`s Northern Command Headquarters have recently floated Request for Proposal (RFP) for procurement of at least 11 heavy-duty scanners for important locations in the Northern Command Theatre, according to a senior Army official.

The Heavy-Duty Baggage Scanners will enhance the security-level at Army units and transit camps at various places, the official said, adding that they are high-sensitivity scanners.

Army is running several transit camps and units in high militancy-hit areas of Jammu and Kashmir, where there is always a threat of passage of suspected explosive material.
