Speaking to The Hans India, Kumar revealed that the CCTV cameras, which were installed, were found to be very useful in checking the crime rate and in nabbing offenders. He urged the people to extend their cooperation in the installation of CCTV cameras.
After the fixing CCTV cameras through the good offices of 'Nenu Saitam' the crime rate has fallen, he asserted. He said that two lakh CCTV cameras have been installed in the city. "There is a need for installing more such CCTV cameras," Kumar added.
