Earlier, it was reported that the highly publicised event was cancelled only hours before it was supposed to take place. However, the event took place without any obstruction to mark the beginning of 2019.
In Karachi, fireworks took place on the beaches at Sea View. The city authorities had earlier banned aerial firing and swimming in the premises to ward off the risk of an accident.
Moreover, in Islamabad, a show took place at the Parade ground.
