Else its definitely a defect in the vapourizer (as it detected 100 RDX in another car too)
Yeah I guess so.

V12, yeah that makes sense as the accent was also a CRDI.

Logic is there as the accent was also a diesel.All other vehicles that were tested in front of me were santros and i10.

Yeah it should be count per million only.Thanks for giving this insight.Because the thought of Kgs was freaking me out.

3) This detector could be searching for traces of a certain component found in RDX. This component could also be used in other products - which your car might have come in contact with. (kinda like TSK mentioned - and ashwinsid's examples of fireworks is a good one too)
But my safari was parked full day yesterday in my porch and never moved.And i do not think anyone even touched it in my absence.

4) The funny thing is that these security checkpoints are fairly useless. If someone did have RDX - i'm sure they could have a way to just drive through and do what they intended.
Cannot agree more.These checks are random in our office too.

5) You're lucky this malfunction happened in apna India -- coz in some other places in the world, the immediate consequences could have been much worse for you. (Read about that traveller who's macbook pro got SHOT because it was "suspicious"...lol)

The sensor display had different bar(like that in a bar graph) for different explosives like TNT,RDX and the bar for RDX was skyrocketing in my case.
remaining all other were absent.

By the way where was the RDX detected, I mean on the which part of the car did the device first give a reading?
The reading was taken when the device was pointed towards both the front doors.I mean they just stood perpedicular to the door with their analyser facing the doors.

Wow which company is this ?

Did it detect RDX on other Diesels apart from Safari and Accent if not may be system D or some other additive.


Apart from finding RDX Ak47 / 56 / 74 are prohibited assault rifles which can fire up to 20 bullets per second.How come your office security got hold of them ? Do they have contacts with Sanjay Dutt and his 'friends' ?

What a Scary Movement, Did you log a complaint or a feedback on the detecting machines to your company security department ?

Just Imagine if your car really had carried 100 kgs of RDX without your knowledge what would have resulted

The AK47 gunmen were not office security but the CRPF or whatever force is deployed in electronic city.They stand guard near infy and my company as well.
And I do not use any additives like system D.All i use if shell diesel to move the beast.
Lolz no sanjaydutt connection though

Imagining that itself makes me freak out.Actually even I was thinking when the sniffer dogs were doing their duty that if indeed something did turn out and what if someone might have put something when the safari was parked in the basement.Really sometimes these things really help you realise what all you have in life and you start to value the things which you had started taking for granted.

Lolz sick man.Why is everyone hitting out on my breakfast.
And still man's stomach has not evolved enough to start producing RDX with mooli parathas

On a serious note though, this speaks of the levels of efficiency, training and the accuracy of sniffer devices that our security personnel possess. It looks like they they did not even understand the seriousness of the situation and left your car parked at a place where an actual blast could have indeed triggered huge damage.
Had an anti social element actually sneaked in right after you, they would have easily let him/her through after a check of the vehicle saying "Aaj to yeh machine hi kharab hai, jaane do".

Do you know if any action was taken to have the sniffer replaced/rectified after the incident?

Not just your office, take one look at the so called metal detectors installed every where, does the guard even know what they are doing or are supposed to do? In fact, I drove up to the Leela last week and when the guard checked Hariya with a mirror, I asked him, "What are you looking for?" He says, "Sir, BOMB".
I asked him "Kaisa dikhta hai BOMB?" and He says "Sir, dekhne mein gol hota hai, kala hota hai aur usme ek wire laga hota hai".

Good that it happened in your office where every one knows who you are. Assume that if this was done on a highway or any other public place or parking lots, you would have been in a bigger mess buddy !!.

Are there any more diesel cars in the office [does this happen when they are checked, I mean have you heard of any other incidence].
Do you use any different polish or something was the car washed with diesel any time earlier?
This thing should not happen [unless the sensor is acting up]. This is bad, your an employee of the company, they know you so it would be handled differently. Some one new would have been in trouble.

The security guards are just picked up from the road and asked to put on a uniform. The other day on my visit to a mall I was quite amused to see the guard asking every one to go through a DFMD (Door Frame Metal detector) and then not checking any one, even though the detector was hooting away after every individual went through it.
