Is Connaught Place-the heart of the Capital which is perpetually on the terror radar-equipped to thwart a jihadi strike? Yes, there’s some succour for the area on the edge.
For the first time, around 341 close circuit cameras along with infrared vehicle number plate recognition cameras will meticulously track the safety and security of buildings and most of the busy hangouts in the area.
Initially, the Electronics Corporation of India Limited (ECIL) had decided to install around 270 CCTV cameras in the Connaught Place area. But few weeks ago, a special team led by Deputy Commissioner of Police ( New Delhi district) Shiv Balak Singh Tyagi, was formed to identify spots where CCTV cameras have to be put up. Later, the Delhi Police asked the ECIL to install 341 CCTV cameras in the area.
