Meanwhile, the officer said that CCTV footage played a ‘huge role in the investigation.

Notably, Srinagar police had in the month of April urged business establishments in the City to follow the orders of the District Magistrate asking the latter to install CCTVs by or before April 19, saying the non-compliance of the directive may lead to Penal Action and FIR.
