The UT police received 340 actionable calls on Diwali this year, of which 27 were complaints about people bursting crackers beyond 10pm. The police received a total of 2,351 calls on Diwali this year and 307 actionable calls out of 1,525 calls last year.

On an average, the police control room (PCR) receives around 250 calls every day.

For the 340 actionable calls, PCR vehicles were dispatched. Of the 2,351, 152 were related to quarrel and 44 to accidents.

The local police had posted more than 2,500 police personnel, including nine deputy superintendents, 33 inspectors and 300 woman constables, for security on Diwali. Personnel were deployed round-the-clock at all sensitive points.

Tight security arrangements were made in areas near clubs and hotels, especially in Sectors 26 and 35, the Aroma light point and Sector-17 Plaza.

Checkposts were set up across the city to maintain law and order and to put a check on violation of traffic rules, especially drunken driving.
