"We have installed CCTV cameras in 20 schools so far to fulfil our commitment to provide fool proof security to students. All schools will have CCTV cameras for the purpose," stated South Delhi Municipal Corporation Mayor Subhash Arya.
Civic officials will also monitor CCTV cameras to keep any eye on security of children and also to address issues related with qualitative delivery of primary education, he said.
"A monitoring team will be constituted in every zone and the SDMC officials at the headquarters will supervise security from the control room at the Civic Centre," Arya added.
The move to install the CCTV cameras has come after 5 year old student Ankit died after he fell in a septic tank at the SDMC school in Kapashera area on January 27 last.
