Anti-Sikh riot: HC directs police to continue security to Verma

New Delhi. The Delhi High Court has directed the police to continue the protection to Abhishek Verma, a witness and controversial arms dealer in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case. The High Court said that the police should continue to provide security to Verma until the CBI informs that he no longer needs to provide security. The High Court was informed by the CBI that the investigation into the case is still underway and they are not in a position to make a statement as to whether Verma, who is being threatened, is needed as a witness.

Justice Yogesh Khanna said on Thursday that under these circumstances, his security should be enhanced till the CBI informs Delhi Police that the petitioner (Verma) is not needed as a witness. This exemption has been given in view of the reason mentioned in their order on 28 September. On the court's decision, three security personnel have been provided to Verma and his family round the clock.

Advocates Maninder Singh and Dinhar Takir, representing Verma, said that they should be provided security at least until their statement is recorded in the case. Verma was first provided security in 2017. The case relates to the riots at Gurdwara Pulbangash in North Delhi on November 1, 1984, a day after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards, in which three people were killed. 

Congress leader Jagdish Tytler has denied his role in the riots and has been given a clean chit by the CBI in the case but the court has directed the agency to investigate the matter further. The victims filed a petition challenging the CBI's 'closure report' in the case.

Gurugram: Breaking traffic rules will be costly, administration has installed 750 CCTV cameras in the city

To improve traffic flow and promote public safety in Gurugram, the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has installed 750 CCTVs at many places in the city. These CCTVs have been installed in the first phase under a project under which 1,200 security cameras are to be installed in Gurugram. The remaining 450 close-circuit televisions will be installed soon.

Officials have connected CCTV with its mobile app, which the city dweller can download on his phone to know where all these have been installed. With this step, GMDA officials will be able to use the footage of cameras from anywhere and will also be able to know whether they are operational or not.

GMDA officials said that the CCTV footage can help in locating the exact locations from where any untoward incident will be reported and the police can be informed for timely help. Also, the app will also create fear in the public's mind and they will avoid violating traffic rules.

Keep an eye on those who break traffic rules

GMDA said, “The work of installing 450 CCTVs is going on. The GMDA had identified 22 major intersections for installation of these cameras, which are connected to the integrated command and control center at the GMDA office in Sector 44, where police and other officers monitor them. ”

They are capable of scanning registration number plates of CCTV trains, recording their speed, determining zebra crossings and parking violations and facial recognition. The GMDA had laid fiber cables across the city to connect CCTV to a centralized command center. Apart from Millennium City, the authority has started installing CCTV in the Manesar region.
