A senior police official said that to maintain law and order, they have increased the security measures in the national capital.

The police officer further said that they have instructed the traffic police to facilitate uninterrupted traffic movement in various areas of Delhi and to quickly arrange diversions for commuters in case the AAP workers and leaders organise protest marches.(IANS)
