Delhi Police are planning big things for a secure Capital. Only, most of these things will kick into action only by next year when the Commonwealth Games are scheduled.

The Ministry of Home Affairs have sanctioned 56 CCTV cameras for all the big markets and 27 such cameras at border check posts.

“CCTV cameras are being procured. We will install all the cameras before the Commonwealth Games,” said a senior police officer on the condition of anonymity, as he was not authorised to speak to the media.

Cameras have been installed at market complexes in Vasant Vihar and at Ghazipur border.

There are several blind spots and market complexes where CCTV cameras are not working.

Police also plan to get real time video footage from across the city at the headquarters.
