3. CCTV Cameras – Hundreds of CCTV cameras installed in Amritsar in order to arrest and detain Sikhs based on their external outlook. Discriminatory arrests of Sikhs by their external outlook (Gatra/kirpan, Chola, Dumalla) used to be practiced widely during 80’s and 90’s. NEW CCTV cameras were installed at the following locations – Hall Gate (central market), Jallianwala Bagh and Sheranwala Gate (the road to the Golden Temple starts here). Punjab Police will monitor the situation from a special control room fed with live pictures from the field. SGPC will also give their Camera access to Punjab Police.
