Speaking to Nation Next, DCP Lohit Matani said: "Due to the COVID pandemic and lockdown, there is lot of frustration and unemployment, which in turn can lead to increase in crime. It's really important to maintain discipline keeping in mind the present situation. We have identified certain areas, where we feel, there can be disturbance between 7 pm to 10 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Presence of police to enforce discipline is really necessary in such areas. According we are carrying out the combing operation and foot patrolling."
