TVBangalore, June 24;Cocking a snook at the so-called high-security Bangalore City Railway Station, thieves stole a 32-inch digital display monitor put up right at the main entrance.

What is galling is that it is not the first such theft: it is in fact the fifth in the last 10 months. It was reported two weeks ago on June 6.

The station is guarded by the Government Railway Police and the Railway Protection Force besides private security.

It is also under closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera surveillance.

Srinivas M., regional manager of Armor Security Solutions, which monitors CCTVs and display units, in his complaint, stated that Shashi Kumar, a security staff of the agency, noticed that the display unit, which was intact at around 2.30 a.m. on June 6, was missing at around 4.30 a.m. when he came for the second round of inspection.

The unit is worth around Rs. 15,000.

In February this year, two LCD display units were stolen from platform 7 and two more stolen in August 2012.

The City Railway Police, who have registered a theft case, said the CCTV camera images of the suspect were blurred and unhelpful.

A senior police officer at the City Railway Station, when contacted, said: “I don’t remember this case. Please call the junior officer as it is just a theft case.”

The railway police officer said: “We suspect it could be the handiwork of the same person in all the five instances.”
