Supreme Court Demands Data On Installation Of CCTVs In Police Stations

The Supreme Court today, ordered all states and union territories to provide data about the installation of CCTV cameras in each and every police station. The top court has asked Chief Secretaries of all the states and union territories to provide data regarding the same. While passing the order, the court said that it’s an important step as it involves the fundamental rights of citizens. The SC had earlier sought the assistance of Attorney General KK Venugopal in apprising the progress made in the installation of CCTV cameras across all police stations in the country.
The Supreme Court’s order came while it was hearing an appeal by Punjab DSP Paramvir Singh Saini, who has been booked in a criminal case for alleged illegal detention of two men in the police station for five days, and torturing them in connection with a murder case. Back in November 2016, the Punjab and Haryana High Court had ordered the registration of an FIR against Saini and five other policemen.
