Sindh Home Department a day earlier had issued a notification imposing Section 144 in the metropolis from Monday midnight to curb raucous festivities on New Year’s Eve.

Section 144 was to remain in effect till January 1.

The notification had stated that youngsters cause trouble to citizens and create traffic jams in the city on the occasion of New Year.

“Youngsters from different parts of the city in cars, riding motorcycles without silencers, throng to Sea View, which creates traffic jam and inconvenience to the residents of the area,” it said.

However, the Govt. Sindh has banned the display of weapons, aerial firing, and the use of firearms on the occasion of the new year.
