Ludhiana: Finance companies are not following the orders of Punjab Police, notice to the officers of Muthoot company for not installing the door frame

On behalf of the Police Commissioner, many instructions have been given to the finance companies and big showroom traders of Ludhiana in terms of security, but they are not being followed. This was clearly seen in Muthoot Finance Company on Saturday morning. The company did not install any door frame at the main gate. If a person walks in with a weapon, it is immediately detected from the door frame. Not only this, where gold or cash is kept, a turn style is installed. Only the person who is authorized can punch his finger and enter. In view of these two flaws, the police is going to summon the officers of Muthoot company by giving notice to them.
