The Supreme Court has ordered the Centre to compulsorily install CCTV cameras and recording equipment in the offices of central agencies like National Investigation Agency (NIA) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The CCTVs and recording equipment would be used as a measure to protect the fundamental right to dignity and life.
Likewise every police station in every State should be under similar CCTV coverage as a deterrent against custodial torture.
Large posters informing people about the CCTV coverage should be prominently placed at the offices of these central agencies and police stations.
