Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (MS)

Udupi, May 10: The coastal security police force are conducting investigation into an alleged 'late-night party' that was taking place at St Mary's Island, Malpe near here on the night of Saturday May 9. It has come to light that seven people had stayed back in the island after the 'party'.

Allegations are being heard of the participation of leaders of Malpe beach development committee and Nirmiti centre. A complaint in this connection has been filed by Yogish Salian, member of city municipality Vadabhandeshwara ward with the Karavali police station.

Source said that meat and liquor bottles were found on the island. Sources informed that the coastal security police brought all those involved in the party to the mainland early morning on Sunday, May 10. Two cars belonging to those who were partying were found near the tourist boat jetty in Malpe. Out of this, one car belongs to Malpe beach development committe and the other to Nirmiti centre, sources said. Police have confiscated both the cars.

Locals, who noticed lights on the island on Saturday night informed the same to the coastal security police. The police went to the island at around 11 pm and questioned all the seven people who were allegedly 'partying' there. The group replied that they had come to take back equipment belonging to Malpe beach development committee as monsoon is round the corner.

The accused also said that they stayed back as the waves were violent. But the coastal security police have undertaken investigation to assess whether those involved had indeed been partying without permission. It is also learnt that the coastal security police has submitted a report in this connection to the DC.

R Chetan, SP of coastal security police said, "Our police undertook the operation based on a complaint that some people were partying in the island. Seven people were found on the island. They were brought to the shore at around 3 am on Sunday. Investigation is on. If they have violated law, suitable action will be taken."

Responding to the issue, Sudesh Shetty, convenor of Malpe beach development committee denied that any party was organized on the island. "I have not been to the island. Five workers had gone there to pick equipment and stayed back as the waves were violent and decided to return in the morning. Except that, nothing else has taken place. No one has partied. These are false allegations. Just rumours. Let the police investigate and take suitable action if found guilty," he said.

The district administration has banned public from visiting St Mary's Island between 7 pm to 7 am. The district administration has yet to issue an official statement on the matter.

    India is a land of tales and fairy-tales.
    Listen to the explanation: Chetan, SP of coastal security police said, Our police undertook the operation based on a complaint that some people were partying in the island. Seven people were found on the island. They were brought to the shore at around 3 am on Sunday. Investigation is on. If they have violated law, suitable action will be taken.

    Sudesh Shetty, convenor of Malpe beach development committee denied that any party was organized on the island. See the big lies here.
    He continues - Five workers had gone there to pick equipment and stayed back as the waves were violent and decided to return in the morning. Except that, nothing else has taken place. No one has partied.

    The district administration has yet to issue an official statement on the matter.
    Before the report comes, its clear, officials are involved and management knew what was going on.
    This is India, and we are fooled day in and day out. At least, one more fairy-tale.

    Let's just introspect. Are we jealous that they were having good time in the island unlike us stuck at home? If they are anyway caretakers of the island and are permitted to go there as such for its upkeep during these times, then we are being bit too harsh in our judgement. I could be wrong, but can't help but feel that we pull out our guns prematurely when others fault. We can choose to be pragmatic.

    In India, the effluent, netas and their cronies do not come under the preview of laws, they are only applicable to common citizens in our society... The local powerful lobby, had definitely organized the party frenzy, with booze n yummy food on the rocks !!!! Let me remind the readers, that state government of my state in Maharashtra, issued VVIP passes, to scam accused Wadhawan to gallavant to Mahableshwar a hill station in their luxurious cars, with families, cooks n staff !!! Till date, no action whatsoever, has been taken against the accused !!! Well likewise, nothing will ever come out, of St Mary's island episode too !!! Mera Bharat Mahan !!!
