The Central Crime Branch on Friday raided a bar and restaurant at Domlur and rescued 74 women who had allegedly been employed by the management. The police also arrested 53 people, including two managers and the cashier of the restaurant Chef Inn Regency.

“The accused employed the women to entertain clients who visited the bar. Customers were allowed to shower money on them while they danced. Those who paid more were allowed to dance with them,” a senior police officer said, adding that the woman were initially hired as bartenders.

The raid was part of a special drive launched by Police Commissioner Alok Kumar against restaurants and pubs attempting to subvert the law. At a recent meeting, he had instructed officers across the city to take action against illegal activities, such as gambling, dance bars, and illegal chit funds.
