Daijiworld Media Network – Bangalore
Bangalore, May 29: In a revelation that is likely to create a stir, the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike has released a CD allegedly showing a 'nude dance party' at a resort near the famous Sri Ghati Subramanya Kshetra in Doddaballapur here.
The CD was released by leaders of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike during a press meet held at Doddaballapur on Tuesday May 28.
As soon as the clippings were telecast on TV channels, the owners of the S R Valley resort said that the incident took place 4 years ago and that a complaint had also been filed in the police station.
Meanwhile, the central zone IGP Amar Kumar Pandey ordered an investigation into the matter and said that further action will be taken based on the probe report.
Shivarame Gowda, state president of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike in a statement said that along with nude dance, there were various other illegal activities taking place in the SR Valley resort located in Bangalore rural district.
He also said resorts located in the outskirts of the city are hubs for illegal activities where they bring girls from other states.
During the press meet, the leaders also released the video clip to the media, but did not say when the party actually took place. The footage reportedly shows over 10 girls with skimpy clothes dancing to a gathering. Some of the men in the crowd also undress. Sources said that the girls were brought from Andhra Pradesh.
On October 9, 2009, a nude dance party was organized in the resort by GVR Agri Chemical company from Andra Pradesh. The manager was sacked and the owner himself had filed a complaint.
On behalf of the company, Chandrashekar from Gauribidanuru had booked rooms in the resort and it is said that more than 100 people were in the party.
"We came to know about the party after a few months. In this regard, we had filed a complaint in Doddaballapur rural police station on September 9, 2010," said Sampangiramaiah, owner of SR Valley resort.
"We were also warned by the police to be alert so that no such incidents occur in future," he said.
Locals express anger against police
Even after the complaint was filed by the resort owner, the police were least bothered about taking action against the accused, allege locals. "Even after 4 years of the incident, no action has been taken so far. Such carelessness by police encourages incidents like these," they said.
In connection to the incident, the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike staged a protest in front of the resort demanding strict action.
Police suspected that the footage was recorded by a videographer who was called to the party by some guests. There is a possibility that the clippings might have been sold later.
The case has been handed over to senior police officer N Nagaraj from Bangalore urban. As per the reports obtained from primary investigation, it is learnt that the incident indeed took place in October 2009.
