KARACHI: People in the city will have to wind up wedding festivities by 11pm after two weeks as the city administration on Thursday decided to curtail the timing of such functions by one hour.

Sources said the decision to this effect was taken at a high-level meeting with Commissioner Iftikhar Shallwani in the chair.

Reviewing the problems caused by late-night wedding functions, the meeting decided to implement stern action, including sealing of marriage hall, in case of violation of the new timings, they said.

A campaign to implement the decision would be launched after two weeks, they said.
