ITANAGAR, Jul 20: Intensifying their drive to sensitize the capital’s residents – particularly youths who indulge in “unethical practices” during night hours – the police under the initiative of Capital SP M Harsha Vardhan conducted night patrolling from Hollongi to Banderdewa and detained more than 50 persons on Friday.
“The police will not sit idle, and continue its drive against all illegal activities, but first, sensitization is necessary to maintain law and order,” the SP said.
He said the police have formed various teams and launched sensitization drives in several areas including Itanagar Gompa, IG Park, the hanging bridge in Chandranagar, Akashdeep market, Itafort, Bank Tinali, Polo Park, Naharlagun, Karsingsa and Banderdewa.
They also questioned people found loitering suspiciously, and caught several youths consuming alcohol and creating unruly scenes in public places.
The SP said the drive is a part of the effort to control street crimes in the evenings. He appealed to the residents of the capital to share information on unlawful activities without hesitation.
