CCTV CAMERAS IN NIGHT SHELTERS

New Delhi। Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB) has installed CCTV cameras in night shelters in order to ensure safety of the women and girls at the shelters and also to keep a vigilant check on visitors there.

 

The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal along with the team of the Commission had visited several night shelters last year and had pointed out several anomalies in security measures there.

The Commission had issued notices to the department and recommended it to take requisite steps to ensure safety and security of women in the shelters.

"After several notices issued by the Commission, DUSIB informed the DCW that it has installed 93 CCTV Cameras at 31 Night Shelters. Out of these, 57 cameras have been installed at 19 women shelters," said a DCW statement.

The women at night shelters near Gurudwara Bangla Sahib had apprised DCW Chief of the non-availability of safety measures and other security concerns at shelter, when she visited the shelter last year. The DCW had also ensured legal action against the molesters at night shelter.
