A proposal to install 50 CCTVs has been pending for over a year now at state's largest government hospital Sassoon General Hospital that has 1,200 beds.

Aftre incidents of thefts of babies at various government hospitals and escape of few undertrials brought for treatment, the state did install a few CCTVs at the paediatric and obstetric departments.
