Mnagaluru, Sep 27, 2015 :   Some youth  were upset after the Mangaluru city police on Sept 26  asked them to scale down a DJ party on the terrace of a prominent city hotel, the police claimed that the organisers did not have permission to serve liquor to a large gathering.   Youth at the party alleged that the police claimed there were threats from right-wing groups, which led to them asking the organisers to scale down the party, but no  danger was seen.

student party Permission had been obtained much earlier, the student claimed, but the police cancelled the permission.  While permitting the event, the police asked the organisers not to allow women into the party as right-wing activists might obstruct the event,  no women attended.

The organisers scaled down the event and served only light liquor at the open terrace. There were only 30 participants.  The police had also told them to wind up the event by 10.30 p.m. so that loud music would not  cause disturbance in the area.

City Police Commissioner S. Murugan stated  that the Mangaluru North police sub-inspector had initially granted the permission. When it was learnt that the organisers did not have CL-4 and CL-7 licence from the Excise Department to serve liquor, the inspector cancelled the permission granted for the event. Neither were there threats from right-wing activists nor were any activists present at the venue, the Commissioner said.
