New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday directed the central government and all the states to install CCTV cameras in all the prisons across the country and take a call on installing them in police lock-ups, if there are incidents.

The apex court bench of Justice T.S. Thakur and Justice R. Banumathi in their judgement said that CCTV cameras should be installed in the prisons within one year but should not later than two years.

The court said that every police station should have at least two women constables.

Pronouncing the judgement, Justice Thakur said that all the state governments must fill up the vacancies of the state human rights commissions within three months time.

The court also directed union territories to set up state human rights commission, noting that none of the them, including Delhi, have their own state human rights commission.

The court directions came while deciding a PIL by one Dilip K. Basu seeking prison reforms and filling of the vacancies of the state human rights commission. (IANS)

Rapper and music composer Badshah, who is excited about his new reality show “Dil Hai Hindustani 2”, says that rapping is not taken seriously in India as an art form.

Badshah was interacting with the media at the launch of Star Plus channel’s forthcoming reality show along with singer Sunidhi Chauhan on Monday.

Badshah, who has delivered some chart-busting rap songs like “Chull”, “Saturday Saturday” and most recent “Tareefan” is eager to spread awareness about rap as an art form.

Talking about it, he said: “Rapping along with dance and stand-up comedy is not taken seriously as an art form in India and this misconception should change.”

“That is one of the main reasons why I have chosen to be a judge on the show. But apart from that, I’m here to have fun as well, and have a better connection with the audience,” he added.

The rapper is also gearing up to produce Bollywood and Punjabi movies and also launching a web series soon through his production house.

Talking about the future of the digital platform, Badshah said: “I think it (digital media) is the future, so it’s very important for any production house right now to concentrate on digital media.”

Sunidhi and Badshah will be judging the second season of the reality show “Dil Hai Hindustani”, along with Bollywood singer and composer Pritam.
