Mumbai: Police rescued several women from a specially built cavity inside a restaurant-cum-bar in the Dahisar area of Mumbai. During a raid in the pub, the police also found many others dancing in the pub.
Police conducted the raid on Friday and arrested 19 customers and six staff, including the manager, from the establishment, according to what PTI was told by Dahisar Police.
A Dahisar Police official said, "We found four women on the dance floor, while 17 women were hidden in a specially-built cavity to hoodwink police during such raids. They were rescued and allowed to leave."
Police booked the accused under Indian Penal Code section 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) due to the way the woman had been hidden in the cavity as well as other offences related to obscenity, PTI learned.
