The protesters demanded the suspension of several police officers for not acting against an alleged sex-and-drug racket last Thursday. Delhi  Law Minister Somnath Bharti had asked 3 police officers to raid a place in Southern New Delhi to arrest Africans, who were believed to part of a drug and prostitution racket, but the officers refused. Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde rejected Kejriwal's offer until the investigation concludes. India’s Supreme Court will consider a lawsuit against Kejriwal’s protest which said the protesters may cause disruption to the Republic Day parade next Sunday.
