Panjab University (PU) has decided to install over 50 CCTV cameras all across its campus here in order to maintain law and order. 'Earlier we had installed CCTV cameras on a trial basis in the canteens and at the entrance of all the hostels. The response was good and now we have decided to install these devices at various sensitive locations of the university in the coming days,' told Naval Kishore, Dean of Students' Welfare.
A central control room will be made in the administrative block to scrutinize round the clock campus activities. Records would be kept for three months. Even the students are quite happy with PU's decision.
