235 boys and girls have been arrested after the anti narcotics cell of the Mumbai Police busted a rave party in pub Bombay 72 degrees East in upmarket Juhu area. There were around 35 girls and foreign nationals in the party. Eight drug dealers were also arrested with a substantial amount of cocaine and other such drugs. Among those arrested were actor Shakti Kapoor’s son Sidhant, who is supposedly a DJ at the pub, and actors Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab’s daughter Sana.
Such parties are gaining popularity in India. It all began since such a party was disrupted by the police in Pushkar, Rajasthan. Since then rave parties are regularly organized and the invitees told of the venue clandestinely. The most recent in news was the rave party that was disrupted by fundamentalists in Bangalore a few months back. The police are informed of such gatherings by locals or just their network of spies.
I guess people should realize that we can have fun even without drugs and hallucinating agents. The police say that such parties are dangerous because many youngsters after consumption of such stuff turn suicidal and get difficult to control.
