Carnival on ice

Felix Chaudhary
Monday, February 24, 2014

THE Duavata Crime Prevention Carnival will not be held until issues surrounding last year's event are cleared up, says newly-appointed Western Division Community Watch Council commander Rajendra Raghlu.

"We are not going ahead with the carnival as yet because of issues arising from payment of debts inherited from the previous event," he said.

"Because of a failure in meeting payments, the name of our organisation has been tarnished and one of the first steps that I am going to undertake is clear these dues and get our council back on track."

Mr Raghlu was recently appointed to head the Western Division community policing team, taking over from predecessor Faiaaz Ali.

"Other districts have done their community policing carnivals but unfortunately the same cannot be said for the West.

"We are keen to have one in the future because carnivals are a great way to bring people together and to highlight issues to the community through entertainment programs."

Mr Raghlu added the council would soon begin outreach programs to develop closer ties between the community and the police.
