Daman (UT): Two high-speed boats arrived
here from the Goa shipyard to enhance patrolling in the
Arabian sea, police said on Wednesday.

Daman Police Superintendent U K Choudhary told PTI the
Union Government has sanctioned two boats for the Union
Territory - Daman and Diu for patrolling in the coastal areas.

"The two boats (a small and another big) arrived here
yesterday from Goa shipyard. These boats will be pressed into
service soon," Choudhary said.

He further said that two technical staff along with
five to six policemen will be part of the patrolling team.
"Earlier, police department used to do patrolling by
renting the fishermen`s boat, which lead to many problems. But
now with the help of these modern boats, coastal patrolling
will be easy and the department will be equipped with
sophisticated weapons," Choudhary said.

A team of police officials had gone to Goa for
training on handling these modern high-speed boats, he said.
