Bengaluru’s reveller hotspot Brigade Road, the site of alleged mass molestation during last New Year’s Eve celebrations, will have a heightened police presence this time around. Officially, police are however not linking the security spike to the alleged mass molestation that shook the nation. Incidentally, police registered a suo moto case over the incident based on media reports on January 3, amid a barrage of criticism. Nearly a year on, they are yet to get a single complaint or evidence to establish that mass molestation did happen on the night of December 31 in the New Year celebration hub of the city. MG Road, another popular New Year’s Eve haunt close to Brigade Road, will also see increased police presence. “Similar arrangements have always been made. We are increasing the police presence in the MG Road-Brigade Road area,” said Bengaluru police commissioner T Suneel Kumar. Police will also set up watch towers to monitor crowd in these two busiest shopping and commercial areas of the India’s Silicon valley.
