Bhubaneswar: The Twin City Commissionerate Police will impose traffic restriction in Odisha capital today in view of the Rabana Podi event on the occasion of Dussehra.
During Rabana Podi, the entire vehicular traffic on NH-16 from Cuttack side shall be diverted from Jayadev Vihar to CRP Square via Behera Sahi, Shastri Nagar, Power House and Unit-8 DAV crossings.
The Baramunda Durga Puja Committee has prepared an effigy of demon Rabana having a height of around 40-50 feet. The effigy will be set on fire, followed by display of fireworks this evening.
The spectacular event is a crowd-puller, for which the streets of the city witness large scale vehicular movement during Rabana Podi, every year.
The burning of the effigy symbolises victory of good over evil and marks the end of Durga Puja festival.
