Panaji, August 12: The Goa Police will crackdown on the participants and organisers of night parties amid the Covid-19 pandemic, state Director General of Police Mukesh Kumar Meena said on Wednesday. "There are many restrictions. Some people have the habit of violating law. Those who participate or organise these parties or those who break restrictions, we will act against them," Meena said.
The top cop's comments came days after a house party organised at a villa in the coastal village of Arpora turned into a streetside brawl after youngsters attending the event got embroiled in a brawl with a local gang.
