In Dibrugarh: Holi was celebrated with pomp and gaiety in the city, our Bureau adds.
Batches of youngsters were seen in all neighbourhoods here on Sunday and today, taking part in the revelries. While no serious law and order has surfaced due to the merry-making, young bikers did turn out to be boisterous and unruly on occasions.
In certain localities, local revellers organised loud parties, causing annoyance to many. In the light of the fact that CBSE schools are having their annual examinations, as well as several ongoing annual examinations are currently under way, the socially conscious section of citizens condemned the police inaction on the errant party organisers.
