India will import sophisticated technology from a US firm to protect the country from terrorist attacks at public places, Minister for Science and Technology Kapil Sibal has said.
Addressing a press conference in New Delhi on Friday, Sibal said that the ministry had been working on the project for the last two years.
"It is necessary to have such devices in public places to prevent blasts. Then the Central Electronics Limited, a public sector undertaking, will make it suitable for Indian conditions," the minister said.
