HYDERABAD: The Cyberabad Police busted a party and apprehended 23 revelers, including 19 Nigerian nationals, at a resort on the city outskirts early Sunday. The arrested include 11 men and eight women, mostly students.

Saturday Night Fever.jpgActing on a tip-off, a police team raided the Leonia Meridian Resorts in Shamirpet area and found the accused ‘dancing indecently’ amid loud music. Most of the men in the party were from Mumbai and had come specifically to have a wild weekend.  “When the team went into the Leonia Meridian Resorts, there was loud music and obscene dance. Liquor was served to the revelers without official permission,” said E Ramachandra Reddy, Additional DCP, Special Operations Team, Cyberabad. The management was running a pub without police permission and hosted a party, complete with obscene dances, the police said.

The raid was conducted by the Special Operations Team around 3.45 a.m. However, several people managed to give police the slip. Apart from the 19 Nigerian nationals, the cops also took into custody three DJs and a resort official — all of whom are natives of Hyderabad. Net cash of `38,600 and four cars were seized.

Shamirpet sub-inspector Chandrasekhar Reddy said the group were playing loud music and consuming liquor even after the permitted time. A case under Section 188 (disobedience to order) and 294 (obscene acts and songs) of the IPC was registered against the accused.
