Mumbai rave party: Cricketer Parnell among ‘wanted accused’

Mumbai, March 25 (IANS) The charge-sheet submitted by police in connection with the May 2012 Juhu rave party case shows South African cricketer Wayne Parnell among the “wanted accused”.

Police had raided a hotel in the posh Juhu area of Mumbai where the rave party with drugs and alcohol flowing freely was going on. As many as 86 people, mostly youth, and around two dozen foreigners were rounded up.
A majority of the foreigners had left the country after their medical tests were carried out. Many are now named as “wanted accused” in the case.
The other accused in the case include Indian cricketer Rahul Sharma, and actor-couple Apoorva and Shilpa Agnihotri, in the charge-sheet submitted by the police last fortnight to the Special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court.
The copies of the charge-sheet were handed over Monday to all the accused who were summoned by the court.
After the police filed the charge-sheet March 6, all the accused were ordered to present themselves in court.
