Priya, who had come from Janakpuri said, "Every law enforcement agency has their headquarters but we never had hoped to visit them due to high-security issues. Here we found the building attractive and it has been well decorated, the security officials are also not stopping us and allowing us to take photos."

Ranjan Yadav, who was also taking selfies said that he visits New Delhi area every year with friends to celebrate several occasions and they take photos from different locations. "This police building has become a new location for us to take a selfie or group photos. The front gate is so well decorated with flowers, it is inviting us to take a photo," Ranjan said.
