Adhering to the directive issued by the Supreme Court for celebrating Diwali in a proper manner, the local police across Dwarka on Thursday released a list of designated spots where people can burst crackers.
The list was circulated by the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) and the respective Station House Officers (SHOs) of the area on WhatsApp groups of residents. Besides, it is being circulated to all the Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) in Dwarka.
According to the list, the Community Centre of the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) at Sector 22 and 23 are the designated spots for people residing in these areas.
Besides, there are two more spots which have been designated - one is at the Dhoolsiras village near DTC bus stand and Shiv Mandir and the other one is near Dada Mota Mandir at the Bharthal village.
For Dwarka South, two vacant plots of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) have been designated for this purpose. One is at Sector 2, Pocket 1 whereas the other one is at Pocket 2.
Similarly for Dwarka North, more than two spots have been listed. They are the park opposite to Akash Hospital, Raja Puri, Ram Lila ground, near Radisson Hotel, Community Hall of Sector 12, DDA market and Community Hall of Sector 17.
When City Spidey asked police about the procedure they followed to choose these spots, they said, “These were selected by the civic bodies first and then, we marked specific ones which come under three major police stations of the area.”
Replying to the question on how hopeful are they when it comes to making people follow set rules, ACP Rajendra Singh said, “We played a proactive role with the RWAs, residents and made all aware about the rules laid by the apex body. Now it is my appeal to co-operate.”
