NAVI MUMBAI TO HAVE TWO NEW POLICE CHOWKIS CLOSE TO THE COASTAL BELT TO MONITOR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES THROUGH THE SEA

With sea route being an important mode for executing criminal activities, the Union Home Ministry has decided to commence chowkis close to the coastal belt. Two such police chowkis have been sanctioned for Navi Mumbai’s Diwale village and one close to the coastal belt of Uran. The RDX transported to Mumbai through the sea during the ’93 Mumbai Blasts is one of the horrifying cases of criminal activities executed through the sea route. Taking cognizance of the immediate need to monitor the coastal regions, the Center’s Union Ministry has sanctioned 22 police chowkis around the coastal belt of the Konkan Region. Two of these will come under the jurisdiction of the Navi Mumbai Police Commissionerate. The plots allocated are in Diwale village in Belapur and Uran’s Mora village. A team of 42 police officials will be deployed for the police chowkis who will be trained to ride boats in the sea as well. He added that very soon CIDCO would finalize the plots allotments with them. Police Commissioner Ramrao Wagh said that there is a need for more police stations, police chowkis and more police personnel to control the crime rate of the city and they have sent proposals for the same to the State’s Home Department.
