The order, issued last Saturday, stated that it has been learnt that Gatari is celebrated in some police stations, two to three days prior to Shravan.
However, despite the order, several police stations would still secretly celebrate Gatari.
But since our superiors started sending strict orders, we had to stop,” said a senior inspector from a suburban police station.
So, the night of Gatari Amavasya (no moon) — the night before Shravan begins — is celebrated with non-vegetarian meals and alcoholic beverages.
