The state tourism department has directed the Indian Reserve Battalion (IRB) not to allow anybody to step on the beach with alcohol or glass bottles.
There are multiple reasons behind this ban and one of them being the rise in crimes against women. This will surely prevent eve teasing incidents on the beaches. Secondly many tourists get injured after stepping on broken liquor bottles on the beaches.
People can now only drink at licensed premises where liquor is served which includes shacks and hotels.
This is surely a bad news for both domestic and local tourist as they will no longer be able to enjoy alcoholic drinks with of sun, sand and water. Well this will also lead to clean beaches.
