Five of the arrested women belong to Kenya while one is from Uganda in Central Africa. They have been booked under the Foreigners Act after they failed to produce passports with valid visa.
“The police nabbed the accused during night patrolling by a women team. They were standing on the road outside the city court with a bunch of miscreants around them,” said Subhash Bokan, PRO of Gurugram police.
“They failed to escape as the patrolling team caught them after a brief chase,” Bokan said.
Meanwhile, the Gurugram Police has deployed over 4,000 personnel at 112 points, including inner city malls, crowded markets and border areas, an officer said.
“As we know Gurugram is one of the main destinations for celebrating New Year’s eve. The residents and party lovers will celebrate and organise events in different areas. I urge the people to celebrate in a peaceful manner,” said DCP east Shashank Kumar Sawan.
“We will also arrange cabs, auto and online cabs especially for women. I also request everyone to maintain law and order and follow traffic rules,” Sawan added.
