Gurgaon, Dec 26: Seven people and 50 others have been detained after Haryana Police and Anti-Narcotics Bureau busted a rave party after being tipped off by the intelligence department.
The even was organised at a farmhouse near Gurgaon on the outskirts of Delhi, close to the border of Mewat on the eve of 25th.
NCB Zonal Director (Delhi) Rohit Sharma said,"The operation was conducted after getting specific intelligence that a rave party is being held here. We contacted Gurgaon police and the operation was conducted jointly."
Those arrested have been charged under the provisions of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, Assistant Superintendent of Police (Mewat) Deepak Gehlawat said.
Gehlawat further informed that blood of samples of all the detainees have been examined, which also includes that of a 46-year old Swiss national.
A senior NCB officer said,"About 50 people, including four girls have been detained by the raiding teams. Majority of those detained are under 30 years and they have been found to have been working in BPOs, even management companies and some are also students in institutions in Delhi and NCR region."
Preliminary investigations suggested that the invite for this illegal drugs abuse party was taking rounds of the internet and the organizers had set the entry fee as Rs 1,000.
The invitation message intercepted by the police read,"onik Scizzor (Dark Prisma Records) Ritual Begins: 00:00 into the woods... Love and Party."
However, the four girls who were detained said that they were not part of the invite and were part of the decoration team. Nevertheless, the police claimed that the organiser has been detained.
Police recovered 'performance enhancing' narcotics like crystal meth, 'Charas', LSD, 'Hashish', 'Ganja' and fine quality Cocaine, abused widely in such parties. Their samples have been sent for lab testing for their purity.
