With mercy level soaring, distribution of juice to traffic police personnel to beat the heat began here on Wednesday.

Personnel involved in regulating and monitoring vehicle movement in the city and across the district will be given lime juice or buttermilk. At many places, they are forced to stand in the centre of the road or along it to regulate traffic. Juice and buttermilk were distributed to them in the past years during summer season.

Officials said that they will be given either lime juice or buttermilk twice a day during the summer season so that they can refresh and continue to perform their duty. They would be supplied the nourishment at the designated spot in the morning and afternoon hours.
