Patil assures revellers of foolproof security

‘Police are all prepared to provide security to revellers, especially to women, children and senior citizens,’ Patil said while responding to a query by reporters on the Bombay High Court order. The high court on Tuesday overturned the 1.30 AM deadline set by Mumbai police for eateries, hotels and restaurants in the metropolis on the eve of New Year and extended the revelry time till 5 AM.

‘People are free to roam in the city overnight without any fear,’ the home minister said, adding that cops’ drive against drunk driving will start at 7 PM. To a query, Patil said there was no specific input on any terror threat to New Year celebrations.
