Dubai, March 25: An Indian woman visiting a hotel in Bahrain along with her husband, was involved in a row after being picked up by police raiding the place to end vice dens. A Future Hotel management spokesman told Gulf Daily News that the woman was taken away despite protests by a hotel official.

''There is no logic to this raid,'' claimed the spokesman who added ''Not every woman who enters a hotel is a prostitute.'' ''The police took with them a female guest who was at the coffee bar with her husband. When the hotel's public relations officer objected to this and explained the woman was not even a staff member, but a customer, the police said that she will have to be taken anyway for being there,'' he added.

''The helpless husband could do nothing but watch his wife being taken away,'' he said.

Fifty-six women suspected of working as prostitutes were arrested in two hotel raids.
