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)
