Our chief reporter says that crime is going up in Allahabad. What struck me most in his report was that 50 per cent of the CC TV cameras installed in different spots of the city are out of order already.  If indeed they are out of order do the  senior officers know about it? And if they do know, have they done anything to have them repaired? If not, why?
This whole matter is quite fishy.

The CCTV cameras were only recently installed. How can they become inoperative  so soon? If I say that there is something fishy I have grounds to apprehend that. There is every reason to suspect that these CCTV cameras have been deliberately made non-functional by the cops themselves. Their game is simple. The camera may or may not photograph the criminals in action but it will certainly notice  the policemen’s acts of omission and commission . And the policemen on the beat are apprehensive that the camera may catch them unawares committing some foul deed.
As and when CCTV cameras are installed, aren’t people deputed to take care of their maintenance and management as well? How is it that so many CCTV cameras are installed and none is there to take care of their proper maintenance, their periodical servicing, in case that is needed? It is difficult to believe that 50 per cent of cameras would go out of order so soon. The suspicion aroused is that  some cops could be calling mechanics not to keep the cameras in perfect trim but to put them out of order. I am sure this matter will be taken up in all seriousness. It  is doubtful that much expense will be allowed without the cover of a good  maintenance service , a guarantee cover as well. The IG should order an inquiry. Two years ago a CCTV camera was installed on Johnstonganj crossing. Within months it went out of order, It was then learnt that the cops were pleading about lack of servicing.We had quoted this instance to tell the authorities that they should make it a point to  have the cameras periodically checked.
