PANAJI: The High Court of Bombay at Goa has directed Shrem Resorts Pvt Ltd not to go ahead and conduct any commercial activity at the Toy Beach Club while also directing the Goa Coastal Zone Management Authority (GCZMA) to seal the said premises.
“We direct Shrem Resorts Pvt Ltd not to carry out any commercial activity at the Toy Beach Club, Candolim. We direct the GCZMA to forthwith seal the said premises. It is open for the GCZMA to seek police assistance if so required,” the HC said.
Prima facie, there appears to be some substance in the petitioner’s submission. In the photographs tendered today by the learned Counsel for the petitioner, the venue shown is Toy Beach Club, Candolim, Goa, which is contrary to what was stated by respondent no.6 in his affidavit tendered yesterday. Shockingly, respondent no.6 should file a false affidavit, misleading the Court.
Learned Counsel appearing for the GCZMA stated that the GCZMA will take prompt steps/action today, during the course of the day.
He stated that the premises where the construction has been undertaken by respondent no.6 for the said event (commercial event), will be sealed.
The Court also directed learned Additional Government Advocate to communicate the said order forthwith to the concerned Officer of the GCZMA and the police so that commercial activities taking place at the aforesaid property are stopped immediately.
