This New Year's Eve no entry to CP without special passes

New Delhi: If you have not booked a seat at a pub or hotel in Central Delhi's most popular party hub, you may not be able to ring in the New Year at Connaught place this year.
The development comes after Delhi Police has decided to restrict the entry of non-invitees to Connaught Place by setting up barricades.
Depender Pathak, Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) confirmed the development to Millennium Post, saying, "We have issued passes to hotels and pubs in Connaught Place. Only people who have genuine passes will be allowed to enter Connaught Place. The rest would be stopped. We do not want people who do not have any work to loiter in the area."
This essentially means that CP will be out of bounds to those who have not booked seats at hotels and restaurants situated there.
Entry of general public will be stopped from 8 pm on New Year's Eve.
People who invited as guests would be issued special passes in advance so that they could enter the area without any hassle.
Elaborating on the police arrangements to check hooliganism, Pathak said a total of 2,038 cops would be deployed on Delhi roads.
Delhi Police is also holding meetings with DCPs and other traffic cops on how to efficiently monitor the New Year celebrations in the Capital.
"We have identified close to 435 special traffic points, where we will deploy our staff in Delhi to tackle the late night vehicular rush. Traffic violations like triple riding, helmetless riding and rash driving would be dealt with firmly," Pathak further said.
Delhi Police has also decided to get tough against drunk driving.
There would also be a considerable police presence at favourite night spots like Hauz Khas village, Saket, Vasant Kunj and Rajouri Garden and many more, with a particular focus on the area adjoining shopping malls in these areas.
"We have identified 125 points in Delhi where our staff would be present with breathalysers to check if commuters and motorists are driving drunk," Pathak said.
