A special team under the leadership of additional DCP has been formed to keep a watch on the drunkards and on those bursting noise-polluting crackers. People found creating ruckus under the influence of alcohol will be picked up. Similarly, anyone found bursting high-decibel crackers won’t be spared. Since the possibility of fire mishaps can’t be ruled out, the police have had a discussion with the staff of the Fire Services department and hospitals regarding their preparedness.  

The DCP also wished a safe and happy Diwali to the city denizens.
