Rave party busted in Chhattarpur, 3 held

New Delhi, June 9

The Delhi Excise Department and the police busted a rave party being held illegally in Chhattarpur here, a government official said on Sunday.

The joint raid was carried out late Saturday night following a tip-off about the alleged violation of excise liquor’s licence and the police arrested three persons, including one of the main coordinators of party.

The venue belonged to a fashion designing company, the official said. Several bottles of alcohol and a number of narcotic substances, including cocaine, were seized during the raid on the premises of the sprawling mill compound, the official said.

The police said they also seized 17 dark brown pills, 21 pink-coloured tablets, cash amounting to Rs 5.43 lakh from the sale proceeds of liquor, pills and entry fee charged by the organisers. According to the Excise Department, minors were also served alcohol at the party and most of the attendees were from Gurgaon, Faridabad and Noida.

“We have seized over 300 bottles of hard liquor and around 350 beer bottles from the venue. Liquor meant for sale in Haryana was also being served at the party,” a department official said.

The police ascertained the organisers were charging Rs 2,200 from each of the guests for the liquor and beer being served there.

According to the police, Pulkit, one of the main coordinators of the party, claimed they had valid liquor licence P-10 for the purpose of serving a limited quantity of beer and liquor.

However, a huge quantity, more than the number mentioned in the licence, of hard liquor such as whisky and vodka was found at the makeshift counters, the police said.

“Pulkit was arrested along with the cashier and driver of the SUV in which liquor in violation of licence terms was found,” a senior police officer said. The police said the entire event was organised by Gaurav Mavi and Ali, both residents of Noida and dealing in property business. They fled the spot as the raid was conducted, the officer said.
