At the time 1,600 police officers were deployed to manage over 60,000 people. This technically means 1 police officer for fewer than 40 people.In addition to the entire city police force, men from reserve battalions were also deployed on the city streets to maintain law and order during New Year’s Eve celebrations.However, none of these arrangements were of any help to the women who became easy targets for drunk hooligans, forcing some of them to literally take off their heeled shoes and run for help. Being terribly outnumbered on the streets surrounded by thousands of revellers, the cops could intervene only in certain situations depending on how bad it was.Four men were eventually arrested. The police official did not elaborate on why the other two men were arrested. All face charges of sexual harassment and assault.The video sparked outrage because it showed a man dismounting from a scooter to grab the woman and drag her towards the vehicle, despite her struggles. The other man on the scooter briefly joined the scuffle as bystanders watched.
