"Currently there are 42 CCTV cameras fixed at various parts of the city. We plan to install 60 more at selected locations in the city. Tender process has been commenced to procure and install CCTV cameras," he said, adding that work would begin soon.

Chandra Sekhar added the city police would also launch an awareness drive in association with NGOs against the use of cigarette, beedi and other tobacco products and close down shops that sell these products near schools.
