Special Police team to assist UP ATS in handling terror attacks, says report

Special Police Operations Team (SPOT) has been constituted to better equip Uttar Pradesh-UP Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) in dealing with any possible terror attack or any other kind of eventuality, Outlook India reports on October 11. The team will help in expediting cases and investigation, besides assisting in cyber monitoring of people involved in terror activities. It will also help in the de-radicalising activities, the ATS said in a release. The team would initially have 694 posts, while 316 more posts would be created for the ATS for quick intelligence compilation, internet monitoring and investigation of events, the release said. Currently, there are 264 posts in the ATS.

"The new force will be ready to deal with bold attacks (attacks on CRPF camps in Rampur, Ayodhya and Pathankot), an abduction and hostage crisis and a bomb attack situation," the ATS said. Specialised commando training would be given to the team members for countering the ultras, rescuing the victims during any such attack and also for foiling a subversive activity by responding to an intelligence input in the shortest possible time, it added. The nature of the team would be that of a high-risk operation team, the release said.
