CCTV cameras to be installed in ChandigarhSeptember 17th, 2008 - 9:03 pm ICT by IANS
Chandigarh, Sep 17 (IANS) In the wake of recent bomb blasts in Delhi Sep 13, Chandigarh police have decided to install Close Circuit Television (CCTV) security cameras at all strategic locations in the city, the police said Wednesday.”Very soon, we will finalise this project of installing CCTV cameras worth Rs.5 million in Chandigarh. We have identified various places in the cities that required utmost scrutiny and these cameras will help the police in keeping an eye on such places at all times,” S.S. Srivastava, Senior Suprintendent of Police, Chandigarh said Wednesday.
“As such, we have not got any threat of bomb explosion so far from anywhere, but if it can happen in Delhi, then it can happen anywhere,” Srivastava said.
“We will install CCTV cameras, with a continuous recording facility of at least for 5 days,” Srivastava added.
He added, CCTV cameras will also be installed at multiplexes, shopping complexes and hotels as visuals are always helpful in recognising the culprits behind any untoward incident.
“With the advent of winters, migration from Jammu and Kashmir region increases. Police will keep an eye on these migrants and verify the details of tenants and people shifting to Chandigarh during this time,” he added.
