Two days after this incident the Jaipur police asked the different marriage hall owners to set-up CCTV cameras and also submit a list of guests and different event vendors to the nearest police station.
“We are also planning to ask the marriage lawn owners to provide us list of people engaged in wedding management right from food caterer, decorator, people engaging in bringing DJ at the wedding, videographer and photographer and others prior to organising a marriage at a lawn. It is necessary for us to have the proper credentials of these people. In the rape case too these things proved handy to make a prompt arrest.” Said Police Comissioner, Anand Srivastav.
