The Oshiwara police raided a gay party being held in a bungalow at Versova early on Sunday and detained 133 people on the charge of indecent behaviour. Actor Bobby Darling was one of the people detained. The police also arrested the two party organisers for not having the requisite permission to serve liquor at the party, while the DJ playing music was arrested for not having the licence to play music, the police said.

The police said they conducted the raid after they received a phone call around 1am about loud music being played at the Spanish Villa bungalow.

A police team then raided the bungalow, which is often used for film shootings, and took the partygoers, organisers and the DJ to Oshiwara police station.

?The team found that those at the party were behaving in an indecent manner as defined under the Bombay Police Act so they were detained and asked to pay a fine of Rs 1,200 each?, said Pratap Dighavkar, deputy commissioner of police (zone 9).

The party organisers, Sharaj Jogani and Saleem Siraj, and DJ Babar were arrested under relevant sections of the Bombay Police Act. The trio was later released on bail. ?The organisers had sent invites online and many who attended the party had paid Rs 450 per person as entry fee,? a police official said.
