Chandigarh: Chandigarh police have decided to install close circuit television (CCTV) security cameras at all strategic locations in the city after taking cognizance of the recent blasts in Delhi on September 13.
"Very soon, we will finalise this project of installing CCTV cameras worth Rs 50 lakh 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," Chandigarh Senior Suprintendent of Police SS Srivastava said on 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.
CCTV cameras will be installed with a continuous recording facility of at least for five days, reports IANS quoting Srivastava.
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," the SSP said.
