No right to instal CCTV cameras for the purpose of spying on neighbours for security reasons: Kerala High Court 

In the case of Agnes Michale v. Cheraneulloor Grama Panchayat and others, the Kerala High Court made the observation on Tuesday that no one is allowed to monitor the activities of their neighbours by installing CCTV cameras, citing security concerns.

Therefore, after consulting with the State government, single-judge Justice VG Arun instructed the State Police Chief to develop appropriate guidelines in this regard.

The Court was debating a petition filed by a citizen who felt violated by her neighbor’s installation of a CCTV camera that purportedly recorded her property and compound.
