Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, which prohibits the gathering of more than four people, was lifted in the city, police said.

Delhi Police Spokesperson Madhur Verma said the prohibitory order was lifted after reviewing the situation in the city.

"Though section 144 has been lifted, extra security arrangements will stay and we will continue vigil in the city," Verma added.

Section 144 was imposed in Delhi on Friday night, except for north and central police districts, following multiple incidents of arson across the city after the conviction of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in Haryana.

Around 15 persons were arrested in Delhi for violence and arson following the rape conviction of the Dera chief.
