Karachiites to celebrate New Year's Eve with ease as roads cleared of containers
KARACHI - Sindh Home Mnister Sohail Anawr Siyal on Saturday night ordered police to remove containers from the routes leading to Sea View and Clifton areas of the mega city.

"If youngsters remain peaceful, police would not irk them,” the minister said while speaking to the media.

Siyal visited various areas near the metropolis' Defence and Clifton localities, including Sea View.

The containers were placed last night to prevent the large crowd at the beach on New Year's Eve. Every year, the majority of roads surrounding Sea View Beach in Defence Housing Authority are blocked with containers to minimise the crowd at the beach.

The minister, however, advised police to put into effect Section 144 to take action against those indulging in aerial firing or one-wheeling as well as those who ride motorcycles without silencers.

"I, myself, will be there to monitor roads around Sea View," he commented.
