Eight alleged drug peddlers have been arrested and 241 persons detained for attending a rave party following a raid at a night club, Mumbai police said on Monday.

Acting on a tip-off that drugs were being peddled at the 'Bombay 72 Degree East' night club, the Anti-Narcotics Cell of the city police raided the establishment late Sunday night, police said.

A woman and an Israeli national were among the eight arrested, they said.

Narcotics like LSD drops, Ecstasy and cannabis were recovered from them, police said.

The others detained will undergo medical tests to confirm their consumption of narcotics at the restaurant.

Those detained include Hindi film actor Shakti Kapoor's son, Sidhant, who was allegedly working as a disc jockey at the night club.
