How many RPF men are stationed at CST and how many are on duty at any given time?
We have 190 men here. You cannot count those on leave and vacancies. Then there are three shifts. The day shifts have more men as more trains come in. When the terrorists attacked that day, the night shift was deployed. There were 28 men on duty. What are the arms at your disposal? We have .303 rifles. In the last few years we have tried to modernise. We have automatic and semi automatic weapons. Now we have 70 odd weapons but we will get more. Most of the old timers do not know how to use the new arms so we are sending them for training again. The new ones passing out know how to use them. How many RPF men are there in the Central Railway? Are they enough? The total sanctioned RPF strength of the Central Railway is 5,005. We have 4,200 plus now. The rest are vacancies. A few go for training and some are on leave. We also take up other jobs. Like on that particular day, 1,000 of our people were in Jammu and Kashmir [Images] on election duty. Where security is concerned, what is enough
