Early investigations reveal that the invite for this Rave party was circulated on FaceBook and WhatsApp, and some of them may not have even directly known the event organisers. The event organisers were charging an entry fee of Rs 1000 each and were also selling narcotics to those who wanted to use them. Liquor was also being served in the party without any excise permit. The role of event organiser is being investigated deeply both by the local police as well as by NCB. Sources also revealed that around 10-12 such parties were earlier organised by the same event manager. One of the individuals detained by the police could be a member of the event organisers. Blood samples of all those found present in the party are being taken for conducting scientific investigation in the matter. After initial investigations, several of them would be arrested based on the evidence available.
Since the jurisdiction was later found to be in the area of Village Bisar under Police Station Tauru, the whole matter is being investigated by Mewat Police now.
