SC: install CCTVs at offices, lock-ups of probe agencies

Dec 02, 2020 20:37 IST

The Centre has been directed by the Supreme Court to install CCTV cameras and recording equipments at offices of all investigative agencies who have the power to interrogate and arrest. These agencies not only include the police stations of all states and union territories but also offices of the CBI, ED, NIA, NCB and others. A bench led by Justice RF Nariman said its is imperative to install CCTVs and recording equipments as most interrogations are carried out in offices. Earlier the apex court had ordered installation of CCTV cameras in all police stations to check human right abuse which included all entry/exit points, main gate, lock up, corridors etc.
