Hyderabad police department is solving sixty percent cases with the help of CCTV camera footage.
Hyderabad: A small clue from the vendor of a roadside eatery, trailed by the actions of a doubtful woman noted on CCTV aided the police department to blow the kidnap case of an 18-month-old boy just within 24 hours in Mailardevpally in the month of November. Police had nabbed the doubtful and saved the boy but the boy’s dad died of shock. In the same way, the CCTVs aided the Cyberabad police to spot 60 percent of the cases listed in the year 2016. Out of the 17.827 cases listed, 2,579 were all theft cases, that is about 14 percent and Rs 15.12 crore was misplaced in them. Property retrieval has come down from 79 percent in the year 2015 to 66 percent in the year 2016.
Cyberabad police commissioner Sandeep Shandilya said the vital reason for criminalities coming down in their space is the fear created amid criminals. In 2016, amazing murder cases like that of Congolese woman Cynthia Vechel who was cruelly murdered by her spouse Rupesh Kumar Mohnani, and a 17-year-old boy slaying a seven-year-old girl in Medchal were also resolved. Cyberabad police also placed an end to organized prostitution rings working from KPHB Road #1 to Hydernagar parish from seven years and imprisoned five of the organizers. They also saved 21 victims and imprisoned 16 sex workers.
Mr Shandilya told that due to demonetisation, police were focusing on safety at banks and serving the public at numerous banks. Due to this there was a small shift of emphasis from corruption. “However there were VVIP actions round the year and prominent international events, Cyberabad police did unusually well in noticing cases with imperfect resources. Though, staff shortage is still a main problem,” he said.
