Locals, cops to stop Anjuna ‘parties’ jointly


North Goa SP Vijay Singh on Saturday met with locals of Anjuna who have been crying foul over the loud music played by shacks and at late night parties.
TOI had reported on Friday that about 150 residents of St Michael's vaddo had come together to "stop the menace" during the tourism season, and had written to 15 authorities to "stop the harassment, nuisance, mischief, danger and illegalities attached to the late night parties".
Singh met with over 50 affected residents, panch members, the Anjuna PI and police personnel of Anjuna police station. The locals apprised the SP about the problems they face because of the loud music played late into the night.
Following the meeting, deputy sarpanch Savio Almeida and panch Lavino Rebello were appointed as representatives of the affected people who will contact the police whenever illegal rave parties are heard. [TOI]
