Mumbai: Chaos at Navy recruitment rally in Malad, security personnel unable to control crowds

Mumbai: Unruly scenes were witnessed during a Navy recruitment drive on Friday as security personnel were unable to control the large number of aspirants who turned up at the camp.

"There was a recruitment rally at INS Hamla, Malad, on Friday morning for senior secondary recruits. We were expecting a good response from volunteers," an official said.

"The response was overwhelming and crowd control created a bit of confusion in the early hours today, which was subsequently handled very efficiently by the local police and Navy officials," he said.

"The recruitment drive is going on smoothly now," the official added.
