With cases of brawls,scuffles and eveteasing marking a gradual increase at the Night Food Street,the Chandigarh Police have decided to enhance security at the street.

“We are enhancing the deployment of police personnel on the food street to check nuisance,” said Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Madhur Verma.

The ASP added: “Most parties involved in brawls come to a compromise and do not file a police complaint. Many of those involved in fights are normally found to be in an inebriated state. Lack of adequate lighting and parking space further aggravates the problem.”

Senior Superintendent of Police S S Srivastava,meanwhile,added that they have already written to the Municipal Corporation to ensure that arrangements for proper lighting,parking and closed-circuit television cameras are made. “This will help check the cases of brawls and scuffles. With proper parking facilities,people will have less reason to fight,” added Srivastava.

The shopkeepers,however,claim that only two personnel are deployed at the food street. “Minor scuffles and brawls are daily features. People fight in the presence of police personnel who intervene only when the issue intensifies,” said a shopkeeper at the food street.
