Even as few as 10 to 15 persons can create havoc in a neighborhood and greatly inconvenience the people, while 50 to 70 police personnel at the scene look on, not doing anything to stop the senseless disruption in peopleâ€™s lives and destruction of peopleâ€™s property. Why were the police deployed if they were not supposed to protect shops, vehicles and people and drive away hooligans who were taking the law into their own hands?
