After the Delhi government imposed a night curfew ahead of the 2021 New Year`s Eve celebrations, the Gurugram Police on Thursday intensified their presence at the border.
The bolstering of security at the Delhi-Gurugram border and celebration venues is intended to ensure compliance of Covid-19 norms.
However, the district administration of Gurugram has not announced any specific restrictions on the New Year`s Eve. As per the earlier order around 50 people are allowed to assemble in banquet halls while 100 people are allowed to gather in the open.
Meanwhile, the Gurugram Police expect that due to the restrictions in the national capital, a large number of people may visit the malls, pubs, bars, hotels in Gurugram for celebrations.
“We have already beefed up our security across the district and numbers of police personnel have been stationed at the borders but as per security purpose and persecutory measure we have appealed the people not to step out unnecessary and enjoy the new celebrations in their homes,” Gurugram Police Commissioner K.K. Rao said.
Meanwhile, ahead of New Year`s celebration around 4,000 police personnel of the Gurugram Police have been deployed throughout the district to maintain law and order situation.
