“Whoever drinks should not drive,” the SP said adding that the police will use alcometres to detect drunken drivers and a suo moto case would be registered against the person immediately.
To avoid any mischief during the celebrations, policemen will be deployed in different parts of the city.
According to Kharkrang, police will look to contain loud celebrations by certain people which could “disturb the peace of people”.  Even as no mega event has been planned to welcome the New Year, the yearly ‘midnight swim’ will go ahead as planned at Crinoline Swimming Pool here. To add to the challenge this time, 60 blocks of ice each weighing 50 KGs will be put into the pool and many are expected to take part in the event.
