As part of its Covid-relief efforts, RC Pune Ganeshkhind, RID 3131, donated two sanitising tunnels to the Chakan and Mhalunge police stations in the city.
The sanitising facilities offer a full body spraying with a skin-friendly liquid for the staff and visitors. Located in the vicinity of an industrial belt, the Chakan police station is frequented by hundreds of visitors daily and has a 70-member police team. Each tunnel cost ₹150,000. The tunnels manufactured by Kotkar Energy Dynamics, a local company in Chakan, consist of a metallic fabricated body covered with polyvinyl screens and spray fountains inside the chamber. The entry and exit into the tunnel are easy and quick as the screen folders are plastic. “This is a very useful and thoughtful donation made by Rotary,” said a senior police officer.
The club felicitated the police officers at the stations for their service during the pandemic. Club president Rajesh Joshi and his wife Gauri were present along with Kotkar Energy managing director Atul Kotkar and his wife Archana, a club member.
