Police said they had filed an FIR in connection with the protest, since it was held without permission. “Legal action has been initiated under IPC Section 188 and Section 3 of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act. No arrest has been made nor has any person been detained as of now,” said DCP (North) Sagar Singh Kalsi.

The women have been protesting for more than 12 days near the Chief Minister’s residence. Protesters alleged they were stopped by the Delhi Police at several points and some of their members were detained — a claim police denied.
