The police have said they will not allow the Indian Premier League (IPL) an extension of the 10 pm deadline for the use of loudspeakers and fireworks.
The IPL cricket final is being played at the DY Patil Stadium in Nerul on Sunday.
The police had earlier booked the IPL management for the use of loudspeakers and fireworks after 10 pm for four matches held this year at the stadium.
Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner Gulabrao Pol warned: “We will book [IPL officials] if they continue to violate norms. We will follow up on the cases registered so far after the IPL ends.”
The Nerul police have registered cases under several sections of the Indian Penal Code related to ‘disobedience of order duly promulgated by a public servant’, ‘public nuisance’ and ‘continuance of nuisance after injunction to discontinue’.
Cases have also been registered under the Noise Regulation Act and Environment Protection Act.
In 2008, too, the Navi Mumbai police had taken action against the then event organisers, Wizcraft, for an alleged violation of the deadline.
