New Year is around the corner and a majority of Kochites are excited to welcome 2017 with party and celebrations. However, disappointing all those who are set to party till early morning of 1 January, the Kerala Police has come up with a set of regulations that ensure total restriction to the celebrations this year.
These rules according to the police officials have been formulated in order to put a limit on unwanted sale and consumption of beer and wine and celebrations that become unsafe if not controlled. Strict instructions have been given to the hotels hosting DJ parties that no beer or wine should be served there after 10 p.m. Also, it has been made mandatory that no celebrations will be allowed anywhere in the city after 12.30 p.m.
The applications from hotels requesting late night parties have been rejected by the police.
