The Delhi Police's West district digitized all malkhanas, rooms for keeping seized arms and ammunition, across its 12 police stations on Friday, police said.
Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik inaugurated the e-malkhana project of the West district at the Punjabi Bagh police station.
It has become the fourth district in Delhi to achieve complete digitization of malkhanas in all its police stations.
Maintenance of malkhana has always been a priority: Top cop
"Maintenance of malkhana has always been a priority to keep the case property in safe custody and its retrieval for presenting before the court and back safely. After digitization, it would be easy to retrieve the case property and would also save time," Patnaik said.
Data of government properties being digitally maintained: DCP
The Deputy Commissioner of Police (West), Monika Bhardwaj, said that the data of all the records of government properties, and the details to whom the property has been issued, etc. are being digitally maintained.
The biometric details of the person who gets the case property released are being maintained along with a photograph and other records, Bhardwaj added.
