NEW DELHI: Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) President Anil Chaudhary has been put under preventive detention at his house in Delhi.

"He brought a number of migrants labourers to Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border both yesterday and today. No social distancing was being maintained. This could lead to further problems," Police said.

A large number of migrant labourers who were walking down to their native states gathered in Gazipur at Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border amid Covid-19 lockdown on Sunday.


According to the Uttar Pradesh Police, labourers have been asked to take trains or buses.


"There is a large crowd here in Gazipur at the Delhi-UP border. We are asking them to take trains or buses. No person without a valid pass is allowed to enter the state," Prachanda Tyagi, sub-inspector, Uttar Pradesh police told ANI.
