The area of Porvorim where the Mall is situated has become highly vulnerable to accidents. The vehicles are parked in haphazard manner near the highway and sometimes people don’t listen to police patrolling in that area. But when the accidents takes place people target the police first. There is need of streamlining the road safety measures near the Mall area in Porvorim.
The government had also promised the CCTV camera installations in Porvorim area long back but still the project has not taken off. It is good that there were CCTV cameras installed in the private establishments situated on the Mapusa Porvorim highway and the cleaver move of Porvorim PI Dalvi made the work of tracking the accused easier.
The more updates in this accident is expected soon the body of the student had been sent to GMC for post mortem and Porvorim police is doing the further investigation under the guidance of PI Jivba Dalvi. If you wish to leave your comments and suggestions on this please go ahead.
