Car floats 7km away as occupants defy curfew, party on vasai beach

A car that got swept away at Kalamb beach in Vasai and was found floating at another spot in Vasai was pulled out after over 17 hours on Wednesday.

Two Vasaigaon constables spotted the badly damaged white Maruti Swift floating around 500 metres from Bhuigaon beach. Police and fire brigade personnel retrieved it around 5.30pm with the help of a tractor.

The car with a Vasai registration was parked at Kalamb on Tuesday night. Some men were partying on the beach, when around 10.30pm, due to high tide, water gushed towards the car and the wheels got stuck in sand.

The occupants abandoned the vehicle. By 6.30am, it was spotted at Bhuigaon beach, around 7km away. Charges under Disaster Management Act will be pressed against the owner for violating curfew between 11pm and 6am, police said
