Mumbai, Jan 25 : In a flip-flop, Mumbai police on Thursday  said they will crack down on couples found meeting in isolated places in Mumbai but soon amended their decision after it evoked sharp criticism.




On January 14, police had sent a circular to all police stations directing them to take action against couples who meet at secluded places, a move which they said was aimed at preventing them from becoming victims of miscreants.

As per the ten-day-old advisory, the couples would be first asked to leave the isolated spot. In case they do not comply, action would be initiated against them under relevant sections of Bombay Police Act such as imposing penalty and detention, among the others.

Police faced criticism for the "moral circular" soon after Mumbai Police spokesperson Ambadas Pote informed the media about the January 14 advisory.
