Police will be taking drunk drivers into custody, they will also be arresting individuals appearing at religious places after consuming alcohol. Police request the public to abide by law at all times and to pay special attention on the safety of children.

Devotees are also requested not to idle at religious places after carrying out their practices.

Over 5000 officers attached to the Traffic Police have been deployed across the country.
