    The police have been directed to be watchful during the festivals to prevent any disturbances and maintain peace in the city. They are concerned that some mischievous individuals may try to exploit the large gatherings to instigate trouble. As a confidence-building measure, the police, along with the Rapid Action Force (RAF), are conducting area marches in the Old City to familiarize themselves with the area and respond quickly in case of emergencies.

    The police have also provided a list of safety measures for event organizers and devotees to follow during the Ganesh immersion. These measures include starting the immersion early to avoid congestion, limiting the number of idols carried in each vehicle, and avoiding the use of DJs on vehicles. The procession should not obstruct traffic flow, and no one should be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The use of colors like ‘kumkum’ or ‘gulal’ should also be avoided.

    Furthermore, carrying weapons, inflammable materials, and engaging in provocative speeches or slogans that can hurt any section of the public are strictly prohibited. Volunteers and organizers are encouraged to promptly report any incidents during the immersion process to the police. Any rumors circulating on social media should also be reported to the police.

    In summary, the city police in Hyderabad are taking strict measures to ensure the smooth conduct of the Ganesh festivities. Special teams have been formed, additional forces deployed, and safety measures provided to maintain peace, tranquility, and law and order during this period.
