Jammu, Jan 31 (PTI) To identify and nab anti-national elements in Jammu and Kashmir, the Union Territory will have 24X7 ground surveillance through CCTV cameras installed across the UT, officials said.

"The aim of implementation of CCTV surveillance system across Jammu and Kashmir is to provide a safe and secure environment to the people and visitors of the Union Territory," J&K Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh said on Monday.

Chairing a high-level meeting to review the status of the implementation of the CCTV surveillance project across Jammu and Kashmir, he said it would help instil confidence among people that they are secure.

"By this system, we will keep an eye on ground 24X7," he added.

He said once commissioned, the system will generate alerts that will help in curbing crime rate in the union territory and be useful in identification and nabbing of anti-national elements and criminals.

The DGP said the project implementers should keep a futuristic outlook in mind as CCTV cameras would continue to be added in future as per emerging needs.

Singh said the quality of equipment and logistics to be used for the project must be of good quality.

He impressed upon the officers to take all the necessary measures for completing the project in time. PTI AB TIR SZM
