Apart from this, police will stand with drug kits secretly this time to ensure that sportsmen singing garba can sing garba peacefully on SG highway and Sindhubhan road where maximum party plots and clubs are located in the city, and police will also find any youth or girl consuming drugs. If he is suspected of having consumed drugs, he will be thrown behind bars. Apart from this, since the traffic problem is the biggest in these areas, the police will ease it and 50 teams of Ahmedabad city will be employed to prevent any girl from being molested. Apart from this, since Garba has been organized at 70 places in Ahmedabad city, the police has also made it mandatory to hold meetings with its organizers and take insurance of the evacuees.
