Delhi Police to bring 44 ‘High Crime Zones’ under CCTV Surveillance

SunplusThe Delhi police have informed the Delhi High Court that it has identified 44 “high crime zones” which will be brought under CCTV surveillance.

The Delhi police and Delhi government, in two separate affidavits, have stated that various proposals to upgrade security and investigation arrangements in the city are “under consideration”.

The affidavits were filed in a suo motu case being heard by the court on women’s safety after the 2012 December 16 gang rape incident.

Last April, police had identified 44 police stations in Delhi which had high incidents of crimes against women such as eve-teasing, molestation, and rape.

During the previous hearing in January, the court had pulled up police and the government for failing to take steps to install CCTVs cameras, recruit police personnel and take other proposed steps to reduce crimes against women.

The affidavit also mentioned that the DCPs would send proposals of the locations of the cameras, which will then be “surveyed through proper government agencies with regard to the technical support”.
