With heavy rush of people on the beaches during weekends, keeping a check on those who tend to hang around the place without any reason was very essential, said some sources.

With a lot of complaints coming in from families about harassment, the police have come out with two telephone numbers for receiving complaints. In addition to this, special CID teams and officers of the Ports Police Station are also keeping a close eye on trouble-makers.

Strict monitoring has also led to a number of arrests in the recent past.

Police officials stated that they have noticed motorbikes, jet skies and cars on the beach. Such vehicles, the police warned, could be confiscated and strict action would be taken against its owners and users.
