Shivaji Park rally: Police case against Shiv Sena
Mumbai: Police have registered a case
against Shiv Sena workers for flouting Noise Pollution Control
Rules during the party`s Dusshera rally, held at Shivaji Park
"A case under Bombay Police Act has been registered
against the organisers of the rally for exceeding the 50
decibel noise level," Assistant Commissioner of Police
Madhukar Sankhe said.
Last week, the Bombay High Court, while granting
permission to the party for holding the rally at the Shivaji
Park grounds, had directed it to abide by the Noise Pollution
Control Rules, which stipulate that in silence zones, noise
level cannot exceed 50 decibel.
"The organisers did not abide by the High Court order and
we are taking action in accordance with law," Sankhe said.
The Sena, which has been holding the Dusshera rally at
the same venue for over four decades, had approached the High
Court after police refused them permission to use loudspeakers
as the area was declared a silence zone.
