New Delhi, Feb 3 (IANS) Policemen will visit “each and every house” in the national capital for servant and tenant verification and also to record the number of senior citizens, Delhi Police Commissioner Y.S. Dadwal said Tuesday.“Our intention is to visit each and every house in the capital to conduct these surveys. We will also check all cyber cafes,” Dadwal told reporters here.
“People are still not forthcoming for servant verifications. We want their cooperation to make the city more secure. These surveys would also be helpful in upgrading our records at the police stations,” he added.

Dadwal stressed that people should exercise self-regulation to improve traffic situation on the city roads.
