Bengaluru: With the New Year's Eve approaching fast, objections against holding events to celebrate the New Year have begun.
Members of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and other pro-Hindu outfits submitted a memorandum to city Police Commissioner T. Suneel Kumar, requesting him to ban New Year's Eve celebrations on MG Road and Brigade Road.
The members stated that the events see the participation of a large number of people, including miscreants, which would eventually result in misdeeds like sexual harassment and other untoward incidents.
Majority of the participants would be under the influence of alcohol and involve in anti-social activities and misbehave with women, the letter stated. To avert such incidents, the police should not give permission for New Year's Eve celebrations on MG Road and Brigade Road, they requested, recalling the alleged mass molestation of women in 2017.
Mr Suneel Kumar said, “We will examine the views presented in the memorandum and take necessary action.”...
