Officers of Delhi Police’s anti-terror unit are planning to send a proposal to the government, pitching for the construction of a multi-storey building in place of the old structure and modernisation of the interrogation room, said sources.
The elite unit has been facing a space crunch, especially when an accused has to be kept in a cell after being detained or arrested.
If the proposal is approved, the unit’s office will have an interrogation room that will be sound-proof, have a two-way mirror and have video recording facilities, said sources.
The Special Cell’s office is divided into southern, northern and southwestern range. The offices are located in New Friends Colony, Rohini and Saket.
Due to threats from various terrorist outfits to the Special Cell, the office is guarded by armed men from the unit as well as personnel from the Nagaland police force.
In July last year, the Special Cell was alerted by security agencies about a possible terror attack after which police had to install two pop-up spike barriers at its entrance gate.
