New Delhi: The Delhi Police is appealing to people to ensure that their protests does not hamper the polling process and cause inconvenience, a senior officer said on Wednesday.

"There are protesters sitting at Shaheen Bagh and outside Jamia Millia Islamia but they have been peaceful. We will ensure that there is conducive atmosphere for elections," said Praveer Ranjan, special commissioner of police, Election Cell.
Delhi polls are slated to be held on February 8. The counting of votes will be on February 11.
The officer said the police has been appealing to people that their protests should not affect polling process and "we hope they will cooperate".
The officer said incidents of violence were recently reported from certain areas of Delhi but police took action and the situation is peaceful.

The move came after the Delhi High Court directed the police to look into the traffic restrictions on this stretch.
