Durga Puja 2021: A Durga Puja pandal in Kolkata modelled on Dubai's iconic Burj Khalifa is drawing thousands of pandal hoppers this Durga Puja season.

The crowds swelled beyond control on Tuesday night and the organisers had to stop a laser light show at the pandal to control the situation.

There were also reports that the laser lights were turned off after complaints from pilots operating flights at the nearby Kolkata international airport. But there has not been any official confirmation of this.

The nearby roads saw massive traffic jams on Monday as cars full of gawkers streamed from all over the metropolis to look at the pandal.
