The Noida police arrested 192 people including 31 women from a rave party being held illegally at a farmhouse in Noida. The accused were held late on Saturday night from the venue in Sector 135 where alcohol and other intoxicants were being served illegally.
A senior police officer said,
“We got information about such a rave party being held at the farmhouse. A raid was carried out late on Saturday night and the information was found to be true. Following this, 161 men and 31 women were nabbed from the spot,”
Senior superintendent of police (Gautam Buddh Nagar) Vaibhav Krishna said.
“Most of those arrested belong to Delhi while some are from Haryana and only a few are from Noida,” he told reporters.
Five of the key organisers of the event have also been arrested and 31 hookah, 112 beer bottles, and 30 liquor bottles, which were meant for sale in Delhi among other items, have been seized from the farmhouse, he said. “The key organisers have been identified as Amit Tyagi, Pankaj Sharma, Adnan Ahmed, and Balesh Kohli, all four from Delhi, and Kapil Singh Bhati from Ghaziabad,” Mr Krishna said.Those arrested will be presented before a magistrate within 24 hours of their custody by officers of Sector 49 police station. An FIR under IPC sections 278 (making atmosphere noxious to health), 268 (public nuisance) and 188 (disobedience to order by public servant), along with relevant sections of the Excise Act, has been registered.
According to police, no prior permission was sought for the party. “We found that contraband was being served in the form of substances that induce sleep, along with hookah. The liquor distributed in the party was from a different state, which in itself is a violation,” said SSP (Gautam Budh Nagar) Vaibhav Krishna.
He added that music was being played on loudspeakers “without permission”.
“To entertain people, they were allotted tables. Of the money that the client would spend on that table, 10% was given to them as commission,” said the SSP. The certification of the company will be part of the probe, police said.
According to police, invitations for the party, called ‘Pool Party Saturday Night’, were sent through WhatsApp and Facebook and the entry charge was Rs 10,000 per person for men. There was no charge for women, police added.
Police said around 50 such parties have been organised at the same location. Police are now ascertaining details of similar parties being held at different locations across NCR by the same group of organisers.The farmhouse owner is into real estate, but is allegedly involved in organising parties as a side business, a senior police officer said.
The organisers have been working in the field for the past five-six years. Police prima facie discovered alleged irregularities in the legality of the farmhouse and its construction, which will be investigated further, an officer said.The role of a police officer has also come under the scanner in connection with the party being allowed without due permission.
