For better supervision and smart surveillance of the Delhi Police, CCTV cameras to be installed on Delhi and UP border.

East Delhi MP Mahesh Giri and State Home Minister Gangaram Aahir inaugurated the ceremony for CCTV cameras installation through the former’s MPLAD funds.

"Delhi shares a long border with UP and often criminals cross over to the neighbouring state after committing crime in the city. Incidents of chain snatching and robbery have become common, requiring enhanced surveillance," said Girri.

He has provided Rs 1.57 crore in which approximately 200 cameras will be installed in near future. Just 20 cameras are already installed at state border.

The Delhi Commissioner of Police, Amulya Patnaik,  appreciated the initiative by the MP. Some senior guests were also invited at the ceremony like Om Prakash Sharma MLA, Ranbir Singh (Commissioner of the EDMC) and senior Delhi Police officers SBK Singh and Nalin Singhal.

According to a senior police officer, it was perhaps for the first time that the MPLAD fund was being utilised by the police for strengthening surveillance and security.
