Police raid rave party in Pune

Mumbai, Aug 2, DHNS:

It was meant to be the ‘Friendship Day’ and the MBA students of Pune’s top ranking management institute — the Symbiosis — had gathered at a farmhouse to commemorate the day on Sunday. The celebration was over beer and wine, which flowed with passing hours.

Students of Symbiosis Institute are detained by the police for organising a 'friendship day' party without “proper permission” at a farmhouse in Pune on Sunday. PTI
At 11 pm when the party was in full swing at the farmhouse at Theur, 25 km from Pune on Pune-Solapur national highway, a group of policemen dropped in and left with 489 students of the Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies.

Of them, 254 were boys and 235 girls, all staying in the college hostels. The students had broken several rules - 90 of them failed sobriety tests; all of them had violated the city’s 10.30 pm curfew.

The police says they were summoned to the farmhouse after complaints of loud music. They found alcohol — mainly beer and wine — doing the rounds. The organisers had not applied for a liquor license for the party. “We received a complaint about loud music, following which we raided the farmhouse. The students neither had permission to play loud music nor to consume alcohol," said DySP Ravindra Singh Pardesi of Pune Rural Police.

“We undertook a medical test of these students and found that 80 of them had consumed alcohol. We released the others then and there itself,” Pardesi added. The police also seized liquor worth Rs 17,000.

The police called a judge to conduct a hearing at the farmhouse itself. After a few hours, the girls were released with a warning. The male students, however, have to apply for bail.

The college has given the students a big fat F for their party. “We have formed a committee under the V-C. He will submit a report on why the students did not return after 12.30 and why liquor was served. We will then take action,” Symbiosis director Vidya Yerawdekar said.
