Police Raid Gay ‘Sex Party’ In Northern India Because Of, Uh, Terrorism Fears

Even though homosexuality is legal in India, inviting over 100 of your nearest and dearest for a “sex party” to celebrate your birthday is, apparently, not. Police in Saharanpur (in the northern part of the country, above New Delhi) raided the bday festivities of of Bunty Vinod, a beauty salon owner, who welcomed guests from near and far who are “affluent and include doctors, lecturers, social activists and students,” reports the Times Of India. Now many of them have been locked up. Why did police even think to bust in? Because of a phone call about “some suspicious-looking outsiders gathering at a dharamshala,” says officer Avinash Misra, who led the raid. “The tip appeared important and couldn’t be overlooked particularly in view of the recent terror alerts. When we reached the site, we found some of the guests in compromising position and recovered used condoms as well. Such things merit action.”
