Civic issues, Features and Personalities of Navi Mumbai
Inputs have come from intelligence agencies of India including RAW that Indian Jews may be targeted for attacks. Police and government have taken decisions to increase the security of synagogues and buildings of Jews in India. Panvel had one of the oldest Jewish Synagogue in Tapal Naka and a community of people living in and around Panvel. From 2nd June security of the Synagogue was increased by Panvel Police after direction came from the office of Navi Mumbai police commissioner. Various security measures are also adopted to ensure the security of synagogue.
On Wednesday, Jews in Panvel had a meeting with the Panvel police, in which they have requested to increase the security for synagogue and lives. Panvel police inspector T.A. Patil had assured to take every possible action to protect the synagogue. The police also asked Jews to stay cautious about the situation and take precautions before contacting to unknown persons. Now the trust controlling synagogue is keeping register of every individual who visiting the area and inquiring about synagogue.
Police have also installed CCTV cameras in 12 different locations due to security reasons. The Panvel police had placed 10 policemen in the premises of the synagogue including one officer and 5 armed policemen. An armed Bulletproof vehicle is also allowed for security of synagogue. As Synagogue is situated in Tapal Naka, one of the congested areas in Panvel, Panvel police is taking every precaution to defend any type of attacks.
165 years old Synagogue was build in 1849. The synagogue is running under Beth-El Trust. Ancestors of these Bene-Israeli families came near to Alibag, after a shipwreck stranded seven Jewish families from Judea at Navagaon near Alibag. 20 families are now related with trust living in and around Panvel.
Moses Korlekar, secretary of Trust said “From June 2 city Police instructed us to take precautions as some threat came. Our security is always a problem, as we are in the hit list of terrorist. Police gave security for our synagogue. We are also taking some precautions to prevent any problems. Police has assured to take every effort to protect synagogue and Jewish people”
T. A. Patil, Senior Police inspector of Panvel, said “we have got the direction from the city commissioner to ensure the security of synagogue, as they got inputs from intelligence agencies from Delhi about a possible terrorist attack on Jews or Jewish synagogues. We have placed enough police force and took precautions to ensure the security of Jewish synagogue in Tapal Naka”
