THE CITY police have geared up for the New Year eve and decided to set up pickets all over the State capital to check road accidents on the night of December 31.

Over 60 pickets would be set up along with stoppers and would function as checking points to check over-speeding. The drunken drivers would be caught and penalised. Action would be taken against those exceeding riding capacity of their vehicles especially three persons on a two-wheeler.

Such vehicles would be seized as well. In rest of the State capital, patrolling would be conducted. The patrolling police would keep an eye on hotels and other eateries to check any rowdy behaviour or brawls.

The arrangements will continue throughout the night and also the next day owing to Eid-uz-Zuha. District police have got three additional companies of SAF. Also, Special Task Force personnel and mounted police would move around the City.
