Following the recent incident of union human resource development (HRD) minister Smriti Irani spotting a camera in a trial room at an outlet of a national garment store chain in Goa, the Chandigarh police today conducted a drive in Sector 17 and city malls to check trial rooms.

Police said cops went to various apparel outlets in the mall to check the positioning of CCTV cameras installed there.
The cops also checked the trial rooms of the stores to make sure there were no hidden cameras or any other device installed in the trial rooms.

Sector-17 SHO Udaypal Singh said female cops visited all trial rooms to find out if any hidden cameras were installed. However, nothing inappropriate was found in any store. He added that similar drives would be conducted in future.
