Himachal rave party in Manali valley – ten detained

Shimla: At least 10 revellers at a rave party, attended mainly by foreigners, were detained in the picturesque Manikaran Valley of Himachal Pradesh, police said today.

Superintendent of Police Ashok Kumar said that blood and urine samples of 10 people were taken after the raid in Kullu district Saturday.

“We are awaiting the medical report. Those who test positive would be arrested (for consuming drugs),” he added.

Police suspect there were 300 people at the party held close to Kasol village, 42 km from Kullu town. Some of the revellers managed to escape.

Cigarettes, bottles of alcohol and tracks of trance music were seized, said a police official.

The Manikaran Valley, some 275 km from state capital Shimla, is notorious for poppy cultivation and rave parties.

Police officials said poppy, grown illegally in vast tracts of Kullu, Mandi and Chamba districts, attracted a large number of backpackers to the higher reaches where some of them become part of poppy smuggling.

    India is dead my friends. It was a fascination in the past to travel and live in india, especially, up north in the mountains. India lost all the the tricks and attractions to catch tourists because tourist have already seen the real face of the india and the indians, How many tourists lost their lives in india, especially in north? Every year how many people go to prison with false charas cases there in the mountains? Charas business is over now, since shiva is already dead in the mountains, cannabis has no powers anymore, God doesn’t live in the hell anymore, this himachal pradesh, as well as the entire india has become a place for the cheats and frauds and where are you from questions asking peoples. Enough of india, are you seeing any tourists in india how they were seen even ten years ago? All these parties and music are just poisoning everyone too because this music has no feelings and no soul. Nothing is good in india anymore and all tourists have already understood that truth and tourists are choosing other places on earth for traveling as well as for living too.
