Of the total arrests, 241 were made in city areas, while 233 in rural areas, they said. “The arrests were made under a three-hour anti-liquor campaign across the district that began at 7.30 pm,” Gautam Buddh Nagar Senior Superintendent of Police Vaibhav Krishna said.

The ‘Operation Clean-6’ drive was carried out against people consuming liquor at public spaces, those drinking outside liquor shops in violation of rules, he said. “Breath analyser test was carried out at various places and 15 people were booked for drunk driving also,” Krishna said.

As many as 52 check points were created across the district, including Noida and Greater Noida city areas, where the arrests were made, the SSP said.
