He directed all Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs) to ramp up inspection of hotels and guest houses, to carry out verification of tenants and domestic help, and also check cyber cafes and second-hand car-dealers.

The Delhi Police Commissioner also conducted a citywide patrol on Sunday night with over 30,000 police personnel.

Security has been intensified in the national capital, especially near the three borders of Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur where farmers have been protesting since late last year.
