New Delhi: In a bid to ensure women’s safety, the Delhi government has decided to install lights in all the dark spots across the city.

“The PWD (Public Works Department) has been asked to identify all dark spots in Delhi as soon as possible,” the Delhi government said.

According to non-government organisations, there are around 700 dark spots in the capital.

“Identification of spots where street lights are not present and places where they are installed but are not working has also been ordered,” the government statement added.

The decision was taken in a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The PWD has also been asked to bring a proposal at the earliest to put up CCTV cameras all over the city.
