The high court in Delhi, India – which was targeted in a terrorist attack on Wednesday will receive 49 more closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras to be planted at strategic locations within three weeks.
According to the Press Trust Of India, a group of senior government officials, including the chief secretary of the Delhi government and the Special Police Commissioner for Law and Order, decided to beef up security around the courthouse after the terrorist blast killed at least 12 people and wounded dozens more.
The officials also decided to de-congest the roads in the vicinity of the courthouse.
Meanwhile, a senior official of the Sports Authority of India (SAI) has told officials that they have an abundance of CCTV cameras left over from the 2010 Commonwealth Games which they can provide to the Delhi court.
Many courthouses in Western countries have CCTV complexes around them from security purposes.
Separately, the Pakistani government has praised the Indian government for its “measured” response to the Delhi blasts.
A spokesman for the Pakistan foreign office Tahmina Janjua said Islamabad appreciated the mature attitude of home minister P Chidambaram who did not blame Pakistan for the attack.
Even the Indian interior minister in his address to the parliament said yesterday there is no clarity, there has been no information on the source of these attacks, she said.
While Indian investigators probe who was behind the bombing at least two Islamic militant groups -- Harkatul-Jihad-e-Islami and Indian Mujahideen -- have taken responsibility for it.
