Ridge in Shimla vacated of tourists over terror threat

Shimla, December 31

The famous Ridge and and the Mall Road wore a deserted look on Friday night after the district authorities got the area cleared of tourists following an input from the intelligence agencies that a Pakistani-based entity was planning a bomb blast at the Ridge on New Year.

The Ridge, which is the most happening place in the town and is flooded with people on New Year every year, was vacated by the police around 8 pm.

Thousands of tourists and local people had gathered at the Ridge Maidan but the police suddenly started vacating it, a tourist said.

Earlier, Deputy Commissioner Aditya Negi said people had been dispersed in wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
