Just a month ago, villagers in Tilokpur village in Ishwardi upazila of Pabna were spending restless nights owing to the growing crime in their neighbourhood.
Young women, both school and college going, were harassed by stalkers, robbery, mugging and drug peddling kept the villagers on an edge. But not anymore.
A simple, yet innovative idea helped sort that out. The young people in Tilokpur village came up with the idea of bringing their village under CCTV surveillance.
The move, under which 32 cameras have been installed already, has proven fruitful up to now, our Pabna correspondent reports quoting Md Shahin Pramanik, a young businessperson by profession and also the pioneer behind the initiative.
