The raid was carried out Saturday night in coordination with police following a tip-off, and besides several bottles of alcohol, a number of narcotic substances, including cocaine, were also found at the spot.
The ‘rave party’ was being held in a large hall in Chhatarpur, which belonged to a fashion designing company and was being used for the rave party, the official said.
Minors were also served alcohol at the party and most of those who attended it were from Gurgaon and Faridabad in Haryana and Noida in Uttar Pradesh, according to the official.
The Government official told The Hindustan Times that they have seized over 300 bottles of liquor and around 350 beer bottles from the party’s venue. It was discovered that liquor meant for sale in Haryana was also being served at the party.
