However, the CISF Security personnel deployed in Keshavpuram Metro station, where the luggage scanner was out of order and repairing was undergoing, were having the unwritten guidelines not to allow carrying the life saving blood in Delhi Metro trains, God knows under whose direction. The discussions, arguments and finally getting a telephone number to contact the higher ups in CISF finally solved the issue by way of an oral permission to carry the blood packets in metro train.
But at the end of the day the pertinent question coming repeatedly in the mind is that in the absence of clear guidelines of CISF authorities, will it not be the loss of precious time or even life for any critically ill patient waiting desperately for the life saving blood in hospital bed if someone carrying it is not allowed to travel by metro rail? Is anybody listening……….?
