Rahul Sharma of India and Wayne Parnell of South Africa, who play in the IPL for Pune Warriors, were questioned by police after the rave party was busted in Juhu in northwest Mumbai, a senior police official said.

"Around 58 boys and 38 girls were detained and taken to a hospital for blood and urine check-up after a rave party was busted in Juhu late Sunday."

However, police refused to confirm whether the players were involved in consuming drugs at the party. This could only be clarified after the results of the medical examination, the official said.

Police have seized around 110 grams of cocaine and over 100 grams of other restricted drugs from the party.

Even though no arrests have been made yet, police have released cricketers on bonds.

Other detainees will be released soon after the medical examination results arrive, police said.

The raid, supervised by Additional Commissioner of Police Vishwas Nangre-Patil, was conducted at the Oakwood Premier hotel near Juhu beach.
