Worried about increasing number of blind murder and honour killing cases, the Sonepat police are now planning to tighten noose around the anti-social elements by improving security in the district, especially in the border areas.
In this regard, the district police have already improved patrolling on the GT Road and have decided to start horse patrolling in parts of the district that lie along with the Yamuna river. The police will install CCTV cameras on prime locations bordering Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
Talking to Hindustan Times, Sonepat superintendent of police (SSP) Abhishek Garg said, "We are going to improve our security and patrolling in the district to put a check on crime within and outside the state."
"We have already started crime patrolling on the GT Road, which is the main route to enter the state from Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. Our next step is to install CCTV cameras at the several locations of the district, especially on the border areas," he said, adding, "We are talking to the municipal committees for funds for installation of the cameras."
Meanwhile, a senior officer of Sonepat police said, "Sonepat is connected with Delhi and Uttar Pradesh and in many cases we have seen that criminals from theses states dump bodies in Sonepat via GT Road and Yamuna."
"Several blind murders have taken place in the district and in most of the cases bodies of the victims could not be identified even after several years," he added.
