Police bust online gay club

January 04, 2006 21:58 IST

Police stumbled upon an online gay club in Uttar Pradesh capital Lucknow when it caught four youth indulging in unnatural sexual acts at a picnic spot.

The police arrested the four men on Tuesday night.

Upon interrogation, the four -- Nihal Ahmed, an asistant accountant in the State Public Services Commission, Pankaj, a college teacher and Ashutosh and Pritam, both working in an ad agency -- revealed they were members of a gay club.

The quartet confessed they interacted with 'willing members' using a website which was password protected.

These members met and indulged in sexual acts at secluded spots.

Those arrested claimed that the members of the club were spread across Delhi, Jhansi, Chennai and as far away as Singapore.

The accused also provided police with names and mobile numbers of 18 other members.
