Install quality cams, govt tells expressway firm

As police are yet to trace the toll collector's killer despite having CCTV footage of Thursday’s shooting, the state government has asked for the installation of good quality cameras that can be zoomed in to record the registration plate of each vehicle passing through the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway toll plaza.

All 100 CCTV cameras installed at the border toll plaza and 48 others at Kherki Daula toll plaza, where collection staff Umeshkant Pandey was shot dead by an SUV occupant, have stationary lenses and do not have the zoom-in and zoom-out features.

According to toll management firm Delhi-Gurgaon Super Connectivity Limited (DGSCL), the CCTVs can record each transaction inside the collection booths and identify the type of vehicles that have different toll rates.

The Haryana minister of state for home, Gopal Kanda, has asked the police to issue instructions to the expressway management firm to install quality cameras. The minister has also mounted pressure on police for cracking the case soon.
