Bengaluru, Sep 20: The police raided a rave party that was in progress in a resort near Anekal here on the night of Saturday September 18. 37 persons were arrested and all of them were remanded to judicial custody.
The party was organized at Green Resort, Tammanayakanahalli. To the accompaniment of high voltage DJ music, young men and women were having drinks and fun. When the police raided the party, several ran helter-skelter. On Sunday morning, some more were taken into custody. Four party organisers, resort manager, students and teachers were among those arrested.
Information about the organization of this party had been publicised through an app ten days back. About 50 people had registered themselves for the party but only 40 came. Some had come from Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu etc. Five girls were present. Even though the area had a night curfew on account of the coronavirus situation, the party was organized secretly. The organisers believed that the party would not come to anyone's notice as the resort is located in the outskirts of the city. But the police got wind of the party after one of the participants sent a video clip of the event.
A police team led by Anekal deputy superintendent of police, Mallesh and Anekal sub-inspector, Madhusudan, raided the spot. Many hid themselves behind the bamboo groves and some rushed towards the forest at the sight of the police. 15 people were taken into custody from the spot and more arrests were made the next morning.
