Margao: Youth from Pedda-Benaulim allegedly caught two persons red-handed while they were disposing of chicken waste along the roadside late last night.
Around 15 youngsters, who maintained vigil along the Pedda road, succeeded in their mission as the duo came late last night to dispose of the chicken waste. The duo were made to clear the entire waste from the roadside as a punishment for disposing of wet waste in an unauthorized manner.
Benaulim sarpanch Xavier Fernandes and two other panchas, who came to the site, assured that the duo will be fined as per the rules in force.
Roque Fernandes told the media on Tuesday that youngsters from Pedda were maintaining vigil along the main road as there was no let up in the disposal of the chicken waste along the roadside. “Through the CCTV footage, we had zeroed in on the duo for being responsible for the waste disposal. When the duo came again last night, they were caught red-handed by the youngsters," he said.
He pointed out that since the duo have confessed their involvement in waste disposal, they were told to clear the Pedda road of the waste. “Our inquiries have revealed that the duo were first collecting waste from Colva and then at a restaurant at Benaulim, before heading to the Pedda road to dispose of the same alongside the road,” he said.
This is not the first time that youngsters from Pedda-Benaulim have caught miscreants red-handed involved in waste dumping along the road. Those caught in the act have been made to clean up the roadsides of all waste as a punishment and deterrent.
