Bengaluru Police raided a rave party at Otto's gastropub on the Old Airport Road and detained 33 people, including two organisers for allegedly selling and consuming drugs on Sunday.

Police reportedly found multiple drugs such as MDMA, ecstasy pills, charas and ganja and detained around 33 people, of which two were party organisers, while the rest were attendees of the party. Police reportedly conducted thorough medical checks for over 40 people present at the party to assess whether they had consumed drugs, while a local report said that over 200 people attended the late-night party.

Police told media that several drug-related transactions had already taken place by the time police reached the venue, with several party-goers already having bought and consumed the drugs. According to police, the attendees included students, people working in IT industry and even businessmen.

The Deputy Commissioner of Police from the East division, Dr Bheemashankar S Guled, told the Deccan Herald that two separate cases have been registered after the raid. One case has been filed against the two people who had organised the rave party and the other has been filed against the 31 party-goers who were found to have consumed the drugs. The organisers have been identified as Senthil and Harikrishna, a report said.
