Chandigarh: To keep a check on crime and criminals, authorities in Haryana’s Rewari district have directed all dhabas (roadside eateries) to install CCTV cameras.
All dhaba owners have been asked to comply with the CCTV directions by July 31, a state government spokesman said here on Monday.
“All dhaba owners would install good quality and night vision CCTV cameras in their dhabas by July 31 and report the same to police station in-charge of their respective areas. Strict action would be taken against dhabas which do not install CCTV cameras by that date,” the spokesman said.
He said the move was aimed at keeping a tab on criminals and anti-social activities.
“Quarrels over the quality of food or harassment of women often happen at dhabas. With the installation of CCTV cameras, dhaba owners can ensure safety and security to people visiting the dhabas. The owners have been asked to inform police in case they find any suspicious person in their dhabas,” he added.

My state has really done an excellent job, especially with the help of government. So now we really can't say that girls are less because they are actually working so hard to bring the equality in terms of boys and girls, in terms of gender.
Miss India first runner-up Meenakshi Chaudhary, who hails from Haryana, says that her state has done an excellent job in bringing an equality between girls and boys with the help of government and this has shown amazing results in all fields.
“My state has really done an excellent job, especially with the help of government. So now we really can’t say that girls are less because they are actually working so hard to bring the equality in terms of boys and girls, in terms of gender.
“Time has proven itself that girls are not less than anybody, specifically in my state Haryana. You see in terms of sports, beauty pageants, I think Haryana has left a mark with Manushi Chillar, with Phogat sisters. We’ve proved our mark in each and every field,” Meenakshi told IANS in an interview here.
She was present to launch Sephora’s store at Oberoi Mall, Goregaon, here on Saturday.

Coming from an Army family, she says that her life is completely changed post winning the title.
“The normal girl I was has transformed into Miss India and I think the entire country knows it and the best part about that is that it has made me realize my own potential. So I think I realize what I was able to do and I am capable of much more so I am really excited to carry this journey forward and learn a lot more,” she said. (IANS)
