Notorious hookah den raided

Unfazed by the crackdown by cops, the notorious hookah mafia of Mira Road continued with their nefarious activities of destroying the moral fabric of the younger generation. Sleuths of the Mira Road police, led by Senior Police Inspector Srikant Padhule, raided yet another hookah parlour and nabbed nine people including the operator and eight customers.

Following a specific tip-off about ongoing illegal acts, the officials swooped down at Cairo Cafe and Lounge – a notorious hookah parlour located in the Sheetal Nagar area of Mira Road (E) last night. While the lounge operator was rounded up along with the soliciting customers, hookah pots were also seized during the surprise raid. A case under the relevant Sections of the Control of Tobacco Products Act (COPTA) and under Section 33(w) of the Bombay Police Act has been registered in this context.

It has been alleged that dozens of hookah parlours that have sprung up around the twin-city have transformed into vice-dens playing host to locals, especially youngsters, for substance abuse which forms a part of their lifestyle.
