The Mumbai police yesterday arrested and booked 11 motorcyclists at a nakabandi on Marine Drive where top brass of Mumbai Police including Joint Commissioner of Police (Joint CP Law and Order) Deven Bharti was also present.

According to police sources, the arrested motorcyclists were taken to the Marine Drive Police station and have been identified as Chaitanya Shashikant Parkar (23), Shamuvel Suhas Kadam (23), Yasin Anwar Khan (25), Avinash Deepnarayan Pandey (28), Kunal Rajesh Sharma (19), Kishor Kalraj Kumavat (18), Jatin Govind Bablani (18), Devesh Sanjay Jyotwani (18), Rohan Chandar Jayswal (18),VivekVinod Sharma (20) and Fareed Feeroz Ansari (21).

“Around 14 youths have been booked under sections 279 (rash driving) and 336 (endangering life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code. Their licenses and motorcycles have been seized. However, they were later released on bail. The nakabandi had been imposed as part of a campaign to curb the rash drivingmenace.The 3 km stretch till Girgaum Chowpatty is especially vulnerable to thismenace,” said a police official.

Sources from the Marine Drive police said that drive was initiated after they received orders from the top brass. The residents staying in the silence zone are scared of these miscreants and avoid going for late night or early morning walks. “We have been carrying out the drive regularly between11 pm and 4 am. Actions are taken against the rash drivers and their driving licences are seized. Later, their licences are submitted in court. The honourable court decides whether the licence should be cancelled for lifetime looking at the seriousness of the case,” a cop said.

Senior Police Inspector (SPI) from Marine Drive Police Station Vilas Gangawane said, “Most of the bikers were not wearing helmets and didn't have proper documents of the bikes. Meanwhile, out of the 14, three bikers ran away abandoning their motorcycles at the nakabandi. We are gathering information on the absconding motorcyclists.”

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Today will be an industrious day. The stars foretell that you may visit a historical place, or perhaps a museum. However, Ganesha says, you may need to pay a little attention to your health. If such is the case, it would be better to take the evening off for yourself.
