Delhi HC To Police, Govt On Women Safety: Install CCTVs At Vulnerable Spots Across City In 8 Weeks, Light Up All Dark Spots!


The Government of NCT of Delhi shall ensure that the procurement of CCTV cameras is completed and the CCTV cameras are installed in the vulnerable areas in coordination with the Delhi Police within eight weeks from today,...


while at the stage of procurement and operationalization, the Delhi Police should also ensure that CCTV footage of the cameras, installed in these police stations, is saved with reasonable archivable time of 1 to 3 months


The court order comes on three petitions – one of which was taken up suo motu by the court after the December 16 gangrape case and two other petitions moved by Ajay Gautam and Nandita Dhar.


Having regard to the facts that the proposal for augmenting of the police force has been shuttling back and forth between the Union Home Ministry on the one hand and the Union Finance Ministry, on the other hand, the Court is of the opinion that, within the next six weeks, concerted efforts, with all individual inputs and involvement of all the concerned personnel/officials, should be undertaken at the highest departmental level, i.e. the Secretary level of the two Ministries and a final decision should be indicated as expeditiously as possible and not later than six weeks from today.
