CCTVs to be installed at liquor vends: Delhi Police

New Delhi: Think twice before uncorking a bottle of alcohol and enjoying your drink near a liquor vend as you might be caught on camera and find yourself behind the bars within minutes.

Delhi Police today issued orders asking liquor vend owners to install CCTV systems with sufficient number of cameras to cover up to 50 metres of area in front of their shops within the next 45 days.

Liquor vend managers will have to conduct real time monitoring of the footage and inform the Police Control Room as also the nearest police station in case of any drinking in public or unauthorised vendor is noticed.

The move comes after an increase in the number of complaints that people purchasing alcohol from liquor vends often start consuming it in front of the shop itself.
