“Your stray bullet could end an innocent life”, Ambassador for Polio Free Pakistan, Aseefa Bhutto Zardari said in a message on Twitter about New Year 2021 celebrations.
Former prime minister Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto’s daughter spoke about aerial firing and celebrating responsibly.
“When the clock strikes midnight, don’t indulge in aerial firing! Your stray bullet could end an innocent life,” Aseefa wrote.
She urged the masses to avoid causing grief to anyone else by firing in the air.
For the first time in years, the Karachi Traffic Police have decided not to close any roads in the city on New Year’s Eve.
However, the ban on aerial firing ban stays and violators will be booked for attempted murder. The police have set up a separate helpline for complaints of aerial firing.
Motorcycle racing and drifting has also been banned.
