We have sought CCTV footage under RTI: People’s Watch

Meanwhile, two human rights organisations, People’s Watch and Joint Action Against Custodial Torture, have sought CCTV footage of Ambasamudram police station, one of the three stations where the alleged custodial torture had taken place, under the Right to Information (RTI) Act within 48 hours.

Speaking to reporters in Tirunelveli, Henri Tiphagne, executive director of People’s Watch, said, “We sought the CCTV footage under RTI on March 28. If the police department refuses to give us the footage, we will bring the issue to the notice of the Supreme Court on April 18 when a case related to the installation of CCTV footage in police stations is to be heard by the court.”
