Over 70 women were rescued and 100 people including customers were detained from a bar-cum-restaurant on Residency Road in Bengaluru after a raid conducted by Central Crime Branch on Sunday.

The CCB raided Times Bar after a tip-off that the bar violated the guidelines of the court like no uniform for the women, no obscene dressing or attracting customers by dancing inside the bar.

“We received a tip-off about some illegal activities at Times Bar and Restaurant and raided the place,” DCP (West-Traffic) S Girish said.

The police said that though the bar had permission to run a ladies service bar, the women, who were from Karnataka and other states, were asked to dance for the customers, who threw money on them, reported Deccan Herald.

Some “privileged “customers, who included bureaucrats, businessmen and students, were allowed to take women with them after the bar closed, reported Bangalore Mirror.

The bar recently saw a shoot-out too. All the owners of the bar are at large and it has emerged that one of the partners of the bar is also a history-sheeter, reported TOI.

Forty employees including the manager, cashiers have been arrested and police has

seized Rs 2 lakh besides 32 mobile phones.
