Mumbai, Dec 31 IBNS | 2 years ago

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday said all hotels and restaurants can remain open for New Year's Eve parties till 5 am.

"It is traditionally a night that people spend with friends and family till morning. There is no valid reason to clamp down on what little is left of the city's night life," said the HC in its order.

However, the HC said the hotels and restaurants should arrange adequate security and safety inside and around them.
