"Seventy per cent of the 40,000 city police strength
will be on the streets maintaining strict vigil on 31st night

that are infamous for eve-teasing," said Deputy Police

No boating parties will be allowed at the Gateway of
India shore, he said, adding "hotels and restaurants across
the city will be allowed to play music in their establishments
till 1.30 AM, and will be allowed to remain open till 5 am".
At Gateway of India, where revellers usually gather in
large numbers to welcome New Year, special enclosures will be
made for females, police said.
"There will be cops in civil dress who will keep a
watch and nab troublemakers if there are any. There will also
be CCTV cameras that will capture the movement of the crowd,"

Juhu, Girgaum chowpaty, Marine Lines, Haji Ali and Dadar, the
