Chandigarh: In order to capture every activity at naka (check posts) erected in city, Chandigarh police is considering of installing CCTVs to keep a tab on traffic offenders .
CCTV cameras will be set up at every single check post erected in Chandigarh. At least three cameras will be set up at every naka in different positions which will not only capture the functioning of Chandigarh Police officials but also the footage of commuters in particular of those who misbehave with cops on duty.
Police sources said that the need of setting up CCTV cameras at nakas was decided after a spate of incidents in city where people have been found arguing with cops. The cameras will also assist in checking the behaviour of cops at nakas.
Earlier, video recording of any untoward incident that occurred at nakas was done through camera held by Police officials themselves. Several citizens questioned rude behaviour of the cops at naka was not recorded at all. To overcome the problem and to get a fair view of spot, Chandigarh Police decided to set up cameras around nakas.
