Bhubaneswar: The special squad of Commissionerate Police on Saturday night sealed three dance bars in Bhubaneswar following raids on Saturday night.
Six girls were rescued during the simultaneous raids, were carried out at two dance bars at Cuttack road and one at Bapuji Nagar.
The dance bars were sealed for engaging bar dancers without license for the same.
This is the third major raid of Commissionerate Police this month on dance bars which were operating at different locations in the city.
On Friday night police raided a dance at Kharavela Nagar here and rescued 10 girls. The bar was sealed as the investigation revealed that the bar was operating without licence and had no permission to conduct musical events. The girls were sent to a short-stay home.
The Commissionerate Police has decided to act tough against such practices in the city conducting regular raids in the twin cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack following reports of violation of rules for operating dance bars.
