The Cyberabad police on Sunday busted a rave party and arrested 26 persons, including 12 women, after raiding a poultry farm premises at Shamirpet area in Hyderabad.

Acting on a tip-off that a rave party was being organised, a police team raided the farm in Turkapalli area of Shamirpet on the city outskirts in the early hours and found the participants allegedly indulging in obscene dance acts, Shamirpet Police Station Inspector T N Babji said.

As many as 26 persons, including 12 women -- three from Mumbai and one belonging to Kolkata, were arrested in connection with the rave party, the inspector said.

Police was in the process of producing them before a local court, the official said, adding that the 14 men arrested are businessmen from different parts of Hyderabad.

One of the organisers, identified as Ranjan, is absconding while his female accomplice, who was part of organising the rave party, is among the 12 arrested women, he said.

The police also seized over Rs 2 lakh cash, several cellphones and four vehicles from the party site, Babji said.

Another senior police official said some liquor bottles were seized from the premises, but no narcotic drugs were found there.

Further investigations were on.
