CCTV cameras to'keep an eye' on Baramulla
Police mulls installation of sophisticated equipments to ‘monitor suspicious elements’
Baramulla, Dec 12: In a bid to “keep an eye on suspicious elements and the overall activities” in this north Kashmir town, the J&K Police is mulling installation of at least five ‘sophisticated’ closed circuit televisions (CCTVs) at different places here.
The cameras, according to sources, would be installed at some ‘important places’ including the Tehsil Office, Police Station, Main Chowk and Kantbagh.
Giant towers have already come up at Tehsil office and in the premises of police station Baramulla where the highly sophisticated CCTVs are being reportedly installed.
“The aim is to keep a close eye on different locations in the town,” said a senior police official, privy to the move.
According to sources, the work on two towers installed in Tehsil office premises and in police station Baramulla has been intensified following killing of a PSO by suspected gunmen in broad daylight on November 20.
“The installation of cameras at Kantbagh Baramulla would help maintain a vigil in the entire area which houses important army installations and is also senior army officials,” they said.
