"Our role is very focused and we are maintaining peace here. I took stock of the security situation. We have adequate police deployment to ensure the safety and security of the area", said the Special Commissioner of Police. "Our aim is that situation remains normal and there is no incitement. For that, we're in continuous touch with people of the area, various pressure groups and who all are visiting here. CCTV cameras have been installed here so that we can keep an eye", added CP Dependra Pathak. Delhi police have installed several CCTV cameras in the Jahangirpuri area for strict surveillance. The police will also install a temporary monitoring station, informed police on Thursday.
