NAVI MUM­BAI: Navi Mum­bai po­lice (zone 2) has or­gan­ised a meet­ing with the own­ers and the man­agers of farm­houses in Pan­vel on Mon­day for en­sur­ing a peace­ful New Year cel­e­bra­tion.

Four real es­tate agents were found mur­dered in one of the farm­houses in Pan­vel dur­ing Di­wali in 2012.

“There are sev­eral farm houses along Pan­vel-Matheran and Pan­vel Ha­ji­malag road in our area. Some of them are owned by film ac­tors too. The own­ers nor­mally come to th­ese farm houses dur­ing such oc­ca­sions with their friends and fam­ily mem­bers. There­fore we are tak­ing ini­tia­tives to en­sure that no un­to­ward in­ci­dents take place here dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tions,” said Viswash Pand­hare, deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (zone 2).

“We will in­struct the own­ers and the man­agers not to or­gan­ise any rave party and other im­moral ac­tiv­i­ties there. Peo­ple should not come there with weapons. Strict ac­tions will be taken if we find any­one vi­o­lat­ing the norms. We will also de­ploy of­fi­cials on th­ese roads for con­duct­ing spe­cial check­ing from De­cem­ber 30,” he added.

Ho­tels and restau­rants in Navi Mum­bai will be al­lowed to be open till 5 am on Jan­uary 1.

VR Chauhan, ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner of po­lice of Navi Mum­bai said, “Our of­fi­cials will be de­ployed at all im­por­tant points of Sion-Pan­vel high­way, Thane-Be­la­pur road and Palm Beach road for the whole night. Around 40 naka­ban­dis will be con­ducted across the city, in­clud­ing 4 to 6 naka­ban­dis on Palm Beach road alone.”

“We have also in­structed our anti nar­cotic cell to stay alert so that no one gets any chance to sell drugs to the stu­dents and other youth. We hope the city will see a peace­ful cel­e­bra­tion like the pre­vi­ous years,” he added.
