250 revellers fined for smoking at Sunburn

They may have ignored other complaints regarding noise violations, but Calangute Police decided to mildly reprimand 250 revellers by fining them for smoking at the Sunburn music festival, which concluded on Saturday.

The offenders were challaned for smoking in a public place, thereby causing inconvenience to others.

When contacted, Calangute Police Inspector Nolasco Raposo confirmed that 250 persons were challaned for smoking.

Incidentally, that was the only offence registered at the music festival, despite other complaints from a number of residents in the locality. [H]
