SHILLONG, Aug 25 - In Meghalaya�s State Capital, two potential crime busters has become victims of crime!
During the past couple of weeks, two Closed Circuit TVs, installed at the office of Printing and Stationery Department to keep an eye on important government documents, were stolen. The incidence occurred on two Sundays. On August 16, one of the CCTVs was stolen and then on August 23 the other CCTV was stolen from the same government building.
Apart from the security guards, the CCTVs were the �third eye� of the security force to protect the government building, which is the repository of important government documents.
�A case has been registered at the Sadar Police Station regarding the theft. We cannot say much about the case at this moment, but we are hopeful of nabbing the culprit,� Superintendent of Police M Kharkrang said.
The police say the CCTVs act as force-multiplier and assist the security agencies immensely.
Many of the CCTVs have been installed in different locations of the State police this year in February.
