New Delhi, Nov 21 (UNI) It will no longer be possible for criminals to cross the peripheries of Delhi soon after committing a crime in the national capital as the Delhi Police is all set to install closed-circuit television(CCTV) cameras at all its borders.

The task of carrying out a survey in this regard had already been given to the Electronics Corporation of India Ltd and the entire installation would be complete in the next three months, sources in the Delhi Police Headquarters said.

The border areas, where 27 high-tech cameras would be mounted, include -- Kapashera, Samalkha, Mahipalpur, Sindhu, Tikri, Ghaziabad and Palla village connecting Dahisera.

These cameras would have the facility of rotating at any angle and their zoom power would be very high so that they would not only identify vehicles trying to move out but also be able to pinpoint their occupants. During night, these cameras would be using infrared technology. The entire project would cost around Rs five crore, they added.

Even checkposts at the border areas would be modernised and upgraded. Their control room would be set up in the Police Headquarters at ITO. The project would help nab criminals and autolifters who flee the capital after committing crimes, they hoped.
