Bengaluru is safe, asserted the state's Home Minister G Parameshwara, faced with an angry city after several women were allegedly molested and heckled on the famous MG Road on New Year's Eve, even as cops struggled to control thousands of revelers who had poured out on the streets at midnight. Elaborate arrangements by the city's authorities were in place to welcome the New Year on MG Road and Brigade road, with an excessive deployment of around 1500 policemen. The Home Minister said there were enough policemen and women in Bengaluru to ensure safety, offering no apology for the incident.
Appearing nonchalant about the gross violation that took place on the streets of Bengaluru on New Year's Eve, Karnataka HM G Parmeshwara said that "such incident do happen on New Year day and Christmas". Meanwhile the inspect of Cubbon Park Police Station was quoted saying by Hindustan Times: "We had deployed 1600 police personnel in the area for new year's celebrations and around 60,000 people had come there that night".
Meanwhile, Karnataka DGP Om Prakash said culprits will be identified and action will taken against them.

Bengaluru police said they did not receive any complaints from women of molestation or misdemeanour, but they did admit having to ward off men who were drunk and misbehaving. But they were heavily out numbered and left powerless, even as women came running to them with stilettos in hand, in an attempt to flee the pawing and abusive men who went on a rampage.
According to the media reports, not a single case of molestation or harassment has been registered despite photographic evidence and eyewitness accounts.
