UDUPI: Regional Commissioner of Mysore MV Jayanthi’s visit to St Mary’s Island on Wednesday to probe the Spring Zouk rave party that was held from February 3 to 5, was apparently a mere eyewash.
The visit came after 50 days after the party, which was in the news for promoting free sex, liquor and narcotics. The administration cleared up the waste though the media brought to their notice liquor bottles, syringes and used condoms found after the event.
On Wednesday, when media persons revisited the island with the Regional Commissioner, the administration covered up the evidences by pouring sand on the dump. Jayanthi and her team were seen picking shells and pebbles. Though hundreds of empty liquor bottles from the rave party were stored in a shed, she made no attempt to look at it.
Deputy Commissioner MT Reju, Superintendent of Police Boralingaiah and others accompanied Jayanthi. The DC, CMC Commissioner Gokuldas Nayak, CPI Girish, Excise Inspector Puttanna and a representative of the event organisers Santhosh made statements. Later at the DC’s office in Manipal, Jayanthi heard over 10 people, including District Mahila Congress president Veronica Carnelio.
