According to a senior police official, all the accused police personnel were assigned on picket duty in different police station areas of the district. But during a raid, they were found to have been absent from their position. Taking this reckless behaviour seriously, action has been taken against them.

Delhi Police sources said, out of these 20 police personnel, only eight were from PS-Hauz Khas. As per reports, it has been strongly instructed to all the police stations in the district to deploy police personnel on different pickets by 7 pm.
