Tamil Nadu DGP has been directed by the Madras High Court to make sure all spas and massage centres have functional CCTV cameras.
Madras HC rejected a plea by CP Girija, who runs an ayurvedic therapy centre at ECR, seeking to restrain Chennai police from interfering with her business activities.
Justice SM Subramaniam was quoted by Times of India as saying, ‘’ The DGP shall issue appropriate directions to ensure that these spas, massage centres and therapy centres are conducting their business activities in a transparent manner and avoid secluded or closed rooms that would pave the way for illegal activities.’’
The court said that the police are empowered to conduct inspections anytime.
The court also observed that installing CCTV Cameras in such public places will go a long way in preventing illegal activities.
The spa centres are further directed to avoid secluded or closed rooms for conducting their business activities. The police have also been instructed to initiate action against any illegal activity in such centres upon receipt of a complaint or based on information received.
