Prayagraj: Fascinated by the massive congregation on the banks of the Sangam during Magh Mela, a group of 28 foreigners, including Italian tourists and students from European universities, praised the UP police for elaborate security, traffic and crowd management . Visiting the mela at Mauni Amavasya, the largest bathing festival of Magh Mela, when the city witnessed more than 2 million devotees bathing in Sangam, they called it “a never-before-seen experience”. Members of the group, including Vianca, Sophia, Azebal, Alejendra, Lyari and others, said the Magh Mela was a great opportunity for students to learn lessons in crowd management. “We were all stunned to witness the sea of congregation on the banks of the Ganges. In fact, many European countries do not even have such populations. It is a major achievement by UP Police when millions of devotees arrive, perform their rituals and return home safely. We thank the UP police for this,” said a student. The group visited the Mela campus early in the morning and some of them even took a holy dip. They also expressed their desire to conduct an investigation into how the UP Police deals with crowd and traffic management during the massive event. Some students pursuing a master’s degree in police science spoke to senior police officers to learn about crowd management. “We are trying to understand how the police carry out the entire process without a single complaint being filed,” they said. A member of Azebal said, “It is an unforgettable experience as the mela policemen gave us a warm welcome and also oriented us about the mega event and management tips.”
