The city police have imposed restrictions on the December 31st night celebrations. The police announced that public gatherings and public celebrations of the New Year are banned.
Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, Police Commissioner Manish Kumar Sinha said that Beach Road stretch from Yarada to Bheemili, including the R.K Beach, would be closed for public right from 6 p.m. on December 31. He said that flyovers and major roads, where there were chances of overspeeding by motorists, would be closed. The road stretches, which would be closed and other traffic advisory, would be informed later, he added.
