KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu Valley Police Office has urged citizens to stay safe during the festivals and contribute to creating a secure atmosphere for families, communities, and the entire city.

Issuing a 10-point appeal for Valley residents today, the Office encouraged everyone to join hands in the campaign for a ‘Safe Kathmandu Valley.’

Office Spokesperson, Senior Superintendent of Police Dinesh Raj Mainali, said the public is expected to remain alert to the possibilities of untoward incidents during the festival times.

He advised people not to entertain the company of strangers during travel and to decline any food or drink offered by unfamiliar individuals, as it may be tainted.

The Office further appealed to Valley residents not to join crowded areas with cash, valuable gadgets, jewelry, or expensive mobile phone sets.

Likewise, people are urged to ensure that house doors, windows, and entrances are properly locked when going out, and if possible, to use siren-fixed locks.

If anyone has to leave their home or shut their shops for an extended period during the festivals, they are advised to inform neighbors and the local police.

The public has been advised to conduct monetary transactions digitally and to keep mobile banking passwords confidential.

They have also been urged not to post personal details or update travel information on social sites.

The Office has warned the general public of the severe consequences of gambling, playing cards and dice, drunk-driving, and traffic rule violations.

It assured people that festivals will be observed confidently, with the deployment of sniffer dogs and drones ensuring sound security.
