Vehicles on Kuakata beach banned
Police have banned driving of any kind of vehicle and playing football on the Kuakata beach to make the spot more enjoyable for tourists.
Posters were hung up at the beach in this regard on Thursday.
Sub-Inspector of Kuakata Police Station Sonjoy Mondol said, "We took this initiative so that tourists can move freely on the beach." He said there are many locals who frequent the beach on motorbikes and harass the tourists there.
"Visitors also become victims of mugging," he said.
He said tourists were also bothered by impromptu football matches that took place on the beach.
Mondol said many tourists complained after being hit by balls, which led to arguments between visitors and locals.
