Pathankot, Oct 12:  Vehicles coming from and will be under the radar of security personnel with the Police today installing CCTV cameras at Madhopur inter-state check post, which serves as an entry point to the vehicles coming from the neighbouring state. “We have installed eight CCTV (cameras) at Madhopur inter-state barrier which will allow the police to keep an eye on all the vehicles coming from Jammu and Kashmir,” Pathankot SSP Rakesh Kaushal said.

It will help the police thwart any attempt by anti-social elements to enter Punjab through the highway, he said. Earlier, no CCTV cameras was installed at the Madhopur check post, which becomes very sensitive from the security point of view as J&K is affected by terrorist activities, police said.
