In a move to make schools more safe for children, the Delhi government on Wednesday announced to install CCTV cameras in each class in all government-run schools.

What is interesting to note is that the parents whose children study in government schools will have a real-time access to the CCTV footage of classrooms to ensure transparency and safety of children.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter to announce the news on Wednesday. 

He also tweeted that he reviewed the progress of installation of CCTV cameras, calling it a move to make the whole system transparent and accountable.

It is believed that the decision was in light of the infamous Ryan International School incident in Gurugram, where a 7-year-old Pradyuman Thakur was found dead with his throat slit in the school's washroom.
