The Navi Mumbai police has registered a case against a 25-year-old man for allegedly operating a drone on the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link in violation of their orders, an official said on Saturday.


The police has also seized the “DGI Minipro 3 drone” used by Mumbai resident Ahmed Mohiuddin Siddiqui on the sea bridge, popular as Atal Setu, around 6.30 pm on February 22, he said.


The official said the Navi Mumbai police have issued prohibitory orders over the use of drones on the country's longest sea bridge and Siddiqui flouted them by operating the flying device.


A case was registered on Friday against Siddiqui under the Indian Penal Code for “disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant” and the Motor Vehicles Act for halting his vehicle in a no-parking zone, said an official from the Nhava Sheva police station in Navi Mumbai.

The 21.8-km bridge originates from Sewri in Mumbai and terminates at Nhava Sheva in Uran taluka in Raigad district.

Meanwhile, on February 19, the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) said it will operate four air-conditioned "Shivneri" buses between Mumbai and Pune via Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) on an experimental basis from February 20.

The move will cut the travel time between the two cities by one hour, while the fare for the "Shivneri" buses will remain unchanged, the transport body stated in a release, according to newswire PTI.

As per the release, the "Shivneri" buses on the Pune railway station-Mantralaya and Swargate-Dadar routes, departing at 6.30 am and 7 am respectively, will reach Mumbai via MTHL and will be operated the same way on the return journey as well.

The buses will be plied via Panvel, Nhava-Sheva and Sewri to access the MTHL, the longest sea bridge in the country.

The bridge originates from Sewri in Mumbai and terminates at Nhava Sheva in Uran taluka of Raigad district.

MSRTC is one of the largest public transport bodies in the country, with a fleet of around 15,000 buses. More than 60 lakh passengers travel in these buses every day. (With inputs from PTI)
