Raids on hookah joints

The raids, conducted by the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike’s Joint Commissioner (South Zone) and the Health Department, revealed that several hookah joints operated without a proper licence.

They were authorised to sell only food items, but had set up hookah parlours in violation of the rules.

Their customers were mainly schoolchildren and college students, the BBMP said in a statement.
