According to police, during the night patrolling more than 1,500 people were detained under Section 65 (Persons bound to comply with the reasonable directions of police officer) of the Delhi Police Act.

“Over 270 vehicles were also seized under Section 66 (Police to take charge of unclaimed property) of the Delhi Police Act during patrolling last night,” said the official.

The official further said that action was also taken under relevant sections of the CrPC against ‘bad characters’ of the areas and people involved in disturbing peace.
