"The area, known for a number of night clubs, attracts a large number of youths, especially on Friday night and weekends. Many of them pass lewd comments on female guests and indulge in hooliganism. These unsocial activities often trigger crime," said Subhash Bokan, PRO of the Gurugram Police.

Of the 248 detained youths, 62 failed to give actual reasons for their presence in the area and proper identity documents. "18 were found teasing women and doing nuisance. FIRs have been registered against them," Bokan said.
