The city police always keeps close tab on illegal activities at the illegal dance bars, but City Police Commissioner Sanjay Barve has went step ahead and asked the Anti Narcotic Cell (ANC) Chief DCP Shivdeep Lande to conduct raids on dance bar in the city who are seen violating the Supreme Court order.

According to police sources, after the major raids were conduct by the DCP Shivdeep Lande at different locations in the city, top brass of the police department praised his work and based on this, the police commissioner has asked him to conduct raids in bars and in hukka parlours as well if they are found violating the norms.

DCP Shivdeep Lande and his team came to light when they conducted raids at the Indiana Restaurant and Bar near Haji Ali on March 23 and around 47 accused were caught while eight bar girls were rescued who were getting intimidated by the accused and were allegedly making obscene gestures. In this case, the Magistrate Court issued an order to the accused to donate Rs 3,000 each to an orphanage in Badlapur to get bail.
