Meanwhile in India, Delhi Police data has revealed a “massive 219 per cent increase in the preventive arrests” of the criminal elements in the city compared to pre-Covid times.

The arrests have led to a reduction in the instances of street crimes with a 19 per cent decline in the use of firearms during this period, said the police.

There has also been a drop of approximately 60 per cent in PCR calls of snatching in 2022 compared to the same period in 2021, police further informed.
