“City dwellers can go for Eid shopping at both during the day and night and return home safely,” he said while distributing new clothes among the destitute at Paltan Community Centre in the afternoon on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.
The DMP chief said no theft incident was recorded anywhere in the city since the beginning of Ramadan. “There had been no incident of robbery and mugging during the period as police are providing security at shopping malls as well as on the streets alongside vigilance by plainclothes police,” he said.
