Thirty-one young people have been fined for 'indecent' dancing in India's entertainment capital, Mumbai, a newspaper report has claimed.
Senior officer Mahesh Patil said that the individuals were fined Rs 1,200 each after a raid on a nightclub in the northern suburb of Malad on Saturday night.
"Ten of the 31 offenders were girls. They were dancing vulgarly in the converted disco, which is considered to be a public place," he was quoted as saying, without elaborating.
The raid, in which 77 people - including diners - were detained altogether, was initially for playing music without a licence, but police decided to act after finding the dancing 'objectionable', the report has claimed.
Patil was not immediately available for comment when contacted by AFP.
News of the raid quickly led to a protest group, Stop Moral Policing in Mumbai, being set up on Facebook, calling for the police, certain political parties and individuals to 'stop defining indecency'.
As well as the Malad incident, it cited the reported arrests of young people holding hands in a western Mumbai suburb in 2007.
