In a bid to check crimes, the local police have planned to install CCTV cameras at strategic points of the district. This was disclosed by Kaithal SP Kuldeep Singh Yadav at a press conference here on Saturday.
He said he had a meeting with deputy commissioner NK Solanki in this regard and would be meeting him again to finalise the points where these cameras should be installed.
In response to a question, he said, the police had failed to find any evidence about the presence of “kale kachhe wale” gang in this district.
Solanki urged the people not to spread false rumours as these created panic among masses.
He said the administration had also asked district development panchayat and block development officers to call meetings of villagers and spread the message.
He said the August 29 incident in which a woman was murdered and another injured in Bodan Mohalla here could not be called the handiwork of any gang at this point of time as nobody had come forward to give any clue about the criminals despite constant appeals by the police.
He said the condition of Pushpa, who was injured in the incident, was stated to be out of danger at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh but she would be in a position to give a statement in three to four days. Police were making efforts to nab the accused, he added.
