Like other Hindus, on this day, sisters put multi-colour tika on the foreheads of their brothers so as to ensure their good health, prosperity and long life. In turn, their brothers offered gifts to their sisters.

The Bangey bazaar, cyber cafes and Money transfer booths were seen crowded since early morning, reported correspondents.

Like in previous years, the local authorities asked camp residents not to play Deusi and Bhailini after 6 p.m. However, various groups were seen playing Deusi and Bhailini till late night or early morning.

No any unforeseen incidents were reported throughout the festival period.

Bhaitika is considered a special festival that strengthens relation between brothers and sisters.
