Bengaluru: The Shivarame Gowda faction of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) claims to have ‘exposed’ a nude dance party that was allegedly being held at a resort near the popular Ghati Subramanya temple in Doddaballapur in Bengaluru Rural district.
The pro-Kannada organisation has claimed that they had received video of a similar event in December last year, but did not file a complaint due to the poll ‘code of conduct’. The party was allegedly held at S.R. Valley Resort on Hindupur Highway.
In the video footage released to the media, more than 10 girls wearing skimpy clothing are seen dancing in front of a large gathering. Some men in the crowd behave indecently with the dancers, who later undress completely and continue dancing. The party, which began past midnight went on till morning, KRV said.
Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, KRV leader Praveen Shetty said that they had received the CD from a villager who had entered the party and recorded the nude dance. “We do not know clearly when the party was held. But he told us that such parties are often held at the resort and that entry is reserved only for a known set of people who can cough up the huge ticket price. From what we know, about 30 girls, all from Andhra Pradesh, danced at the party. There were more than 200 men watching the show,” Shetty added.
However, when questioned as to why no police case was registered in connection with the incident, Shetty said, “Whenever we expose such things and file a case, our activists get in trouble. So this time, we just sent CDs to the SP and local police.”
When contacted, IGP (Central Range) Amar Kumar Pandey said he had ordered a probe into the incident. “I have sought a detailed report and once it reaches me, we will initiate further action,” he said.
He also said that in 2010, the resort’s owner himself had filed a similar complaint with the local police and later had sacked his manager for organising such parties. “After that, we have not received any such complaints. Even the police often make surprise visits to resorts to keep a check on illegal activities,” Pandey said.
