There seems to be no let-up in Goa’s party scene in the beach belts of north as police on Sunday night arrested a Russian national and a hotel owner for organising a party at Morjim.The Morjim party comes over a month after locals foiled an attempt by foreigners to host a rave party at Pernem.
They demanded that all the guests who violated curfew orders must be arrested and even questioned the cops on how the foreigners were “allowed to escape”. As per the Centre’s guidelines, Goa has restricted movement or gathering of people between 10pm and 5am except for medical or other emergencies.
Sources said this is not the first such party involving foreigners since the lockdown began. They said that in Ashvem, some foreign nationals had organised a party in a stone quarry. Another was held in Arambol, from where police seized some musical instruments.
As soon as the matter came to the notice of the panchayat, a meeting was convened at 11.30am on Monday, she said, and a show cause notice was sent to the hotel owner.
