Documents accessed by India Today reveal that the Rohini court in Delhi had acknowledged the “need to augment security arrangements”, but little to nothing was done to plug the lapses.

NOT ENOUGH CCTV CAMERAS
Submitting the response on behalf of Rohini court, the District & Sessions judges had mentioned that there is “grossly insufficient number of CCTV cameras installed in the Rohini court complex” and the matter has been sent for administrative approval and financial sanction to GNCT Delhi on July 25, 2017, where it has been pending since then.ALSO READ | Lawyer moves SC over Rohini court shootout, Delhi Police recreates crime sceneThe Rohini Court shootout has sent shockwaves through the entire country. The Delhi Police has filed an FIR under Arms Act and is also investigating the security lapses. However, the details accessed by India Today clearly reveal the lackadaisical attitude towards security, especially when existing lapses were known to the concerned authorities.
NO PASS SYSTEM
In Rohini court, there is no system of issuing passes for lawyers and litigants. This is one of the loopholes that was used by the two assailants who came in the garb of lawyers to carry out the attack on gangster Jitendra Gogi.Speaking to India Today, Advocate Kunwar Gangesh, who had filed the PIL on security breaches in Delhi courts, said, “Such incidents repeatedly happen yet nothing is done. I was an intern when the Karkardooma shooting happened in 2015. We will be moving the High Court on Monday seeking an urgent hearing now.”ALSO READ | ‘Riddled with bullets’: Eyewitnesses recount horror of Rohini courtroom shootout
