Panaad sa Negros
peaceful – police
The week-long Panaad sa Negros Festival 2013 ended Saturday with no casualties recorded, Supt. Santiago Rapiz, who was in-charge of security at the Panaad Park and Stadium in Brgy. Mansilingan where the festival was held, said yesterday.
Except for an incident on Friday, where a teenager was stabbed by an unidentified reveler at the Park, and a pin gun recovered from one of the revelers, no other untoward incidents were recorded, Rapiz said.
Rapiz attributed the peaceful celebration of this year’s festival to the 250 policemen from the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office and 50 from the Bacolod City Police.
He said traffic flowed smoothly at the festival site because of the one-way scheme they implemented at the Stadium. The gate near the Regent Pearl Homes Subdivision was designated as the entrance, and the one in front of the Grandville subdivision in Brgy. Mansilingan as the exit, he said.*APN
