Cops bust 47 Mumbai law students at 'obscene' Lonavla dance party with condoms, foreign liquor

Up to 47 students, reportedly from a law school in Mumbai, were arrested in a Lonavla house party for allegedly dancing obscenely and being drunk, with police 'discovering' booze and condoms at the costume party.

They were charged under section 294 of the Indian Penal Code, section 110, 112 and 117 of the Bombay Police Act and section (65) (E) of the Bombay Prohibition Act, according to news reports.

Police officers told papers: "Of the 45 students arrested, 20 were women from the same college. Our team found these students indulging in obscene dance. Most of them were under the influence of alcohol.

"It was a masquerade party and the girls were dressed in a one piece dress with masks."

Produced in Vadgaon Maval court on Thursday they were released after paying Rs 10,000 each in surety with proper bail scheduled for April 16.

Lawyer Sanjay Wandre, who is reportedly representing the students, said: "The students did not indulg in any obscene act. As for the dresses they were wearing, modern clothes are commonly worn by youth from Mumbai and there was nothing objectionable about it." [TOI] [DNA]
