KalingaTV News Network

Bhubaneswar: Commissioner of Police YB Khurania inaugurated Odisha’s firs Hi-tech Examination Cell equipped with modern audio-video recording facilities at Capital Police Station here on Thursday.

“The Hi-tech Examination Cell, which is the first of its kind was opened here today with an aim to do away with traditional method of interrogation and bring in more transparency in the questioning process. This will help in audio-visual recording of statements of the accused, eye witnesses and suspects,” said Khurania while inaugurating the Hi-Tech Interrogation Cell.

There are three chambers in the Hi-Tech Interrogation Cell.

The first chamber is meant for the lawyers and relatives of the accused who can directly watch the interrogation process with prior permission from the court.

While the second chamber will be used to record statements of the suspects, the third chamber will be used to store audio-video recordings of the examination cell.

He also said that the facilities will be gradually made available in other police stations coming under the purview of Commissionerate Police in Bhubaneswar- Cuttack.

The Commissioner of Police further said that the entire interrogation process of the accused, suspects and victims will be recorded in the examination cell, adding if there is any allegation against any investigating officer about the interrogation process, the officer concerned can produce the tape to prove his innocence.

A voluntary blood donation camp was also organised on the sideline of the inauguration of the Hi-Tech Interrogation Cell, where many youths donated their blood.
