HYDERABAD: The city task force sleuths detained 21 women for obscene activities, and eight staff members including manager and deputy manger of Lisbon Pub in Punjagutta for violations late on Wednesday night. The police raided the pub after receiving a tip-off that skimpily clad women were performing obscene dances at the club.
"When we entered the pub, around 30 women in an intoxicated condition, were involved in indecent activity with male customers. We immediately detained 21 of them. The remaining women ran away from the place," police officials said.
The pub was also in trouble with the cops a few months back, when a woman associated with it was assaulted by other women staff of the pub.
