As many as 64 CCTV cameras have been installed along the Araniko Highway from Jadibuti Bridge to Sanga Chowk.

Additional Inspector General of Police Hari Bahadur Pal, who is chief of the Metropolitan Police Office, Ranipokhari, inaugurated the installation amid a function on Friday. The inauguration was held in the premises of the Metropolitan Police Range, Bhaktapur.

On the occasion, AIG Pal said the installation of CCTV cameras would help reduce road accidents and crimes. “Bhaktapur police have done its good job. They have helped reduce corruption. There is a need to carry out reforms within the police,” he said.
