Mumbai Police on Tuesday (June 2, 2020) banned the movement of people along the coastline from 12 AM on June 3 till 12 PM on June 4 in view of the threat posed by impending cyclonic storm `Nisarga’.

Mumbai Police in an official order restricted any presence or movement of one or more persons in public places along the coast like beaches, promenades, parks and other such places near the coastline where people may gather to prevent loss of life and property.

The notice also read that any person contravening the order shall be punishable under section 188 of the IPC.

NDRF commander, Ishwar Mate, said, ”NDRF teams have been deployed at places on high alert. The NDRF teams will help locals to deal with difficulties during cyclones.”

Cyclone Nisarga is most likely to cross north Maharashtra and adjoining south Gujarat coast between Harihareshwar and Daman, close to Alibagh (Raigad) on June 3 afternoon as a Severe Cyclonic Storm with a wind speed of 100-110 kmph to 120 kmph.
