Canacona pólice keep watch on beach parties

From Our Correspondent

CANACONA, Dec 31: The Palolem beach in Canacona taluka is being overcrowded by foreign tourists fór the celebration of Christmas and New year. Hotels, shacks, temporary tents and other accommodation places are already full. The tourists are now being accommodated in the houses of the local residents.

As the beach parties have been banned at some other beaches in the state the influx of tourists is seen to be diverted to Palolem and other neighbouring places, with the intention of holding the beach parties. However the Canacona police have already taken steps to stall the organisation of beach parties. This has further sent the tourists to the Ankola and Gokarn beaches in the Uttar Kannada district of Karnataka.

The police sub-inspector (PSI) of Canacona, Mr Maheshwar Naik, has said the illegal activities will not be permitted in the Canacona taluka, including the Palolem beach área. The police force has kept a round-the-clock vigilance, over the taluka, he added.
