The Sindh government has banned aerial firing, fireworks and riding motorcycles without silencers on New Year’s Eve. According to a notification issued by the provincial home department, the government has imposed Section 144 on aerial firing, fireworks and riding motorcycles without silencers on the eve of New Year. Apart from this, Karachiites will not be allowed to go to Sea View to welcome the New Year.

A heavy contingent of law enforcers will be deployed on the routes leading towards Sea View while barricades will also be fixed on the routes leading towards the beach.

“Only the residents of the area will be allowed to go to their homes.” Apart from the district police, the traffic police are also making alternative routes for the occasion.

Each year, several people set up fireworks and shoot ammunition into the sky to welcome the new year in. However, this practice has taken several lives and injured others.

Though the revellers celebrate New Year in each part of the city, Sea View and Five Star Chowrangi in North Nazimabad are the two hotspots for the youths, where thousands of youngsters gather and celebrate New Year.

It remains to be seen whether the ban will be proven successful.
