Times of India is reporting that Mumbai will have 100 closed circuit TVs to monitor crime across city. Reminds me of something that Chicago has done too and has been extremely successful at it. Will it succeed in Mumbai. Couple it with the fact that just this very week a girl was raped by a policeman inside a police-chowki and you don’t really need an answer from me, do you? For all you know – you might have policemen ogling at girls through these closed circuit TVs.
And then of course you have Shiv Sena proclaiming that women get raped because of the clothes they wear. So much for making Bombay like Singapore or Honk Kong or whatever.
