Mumbai: It seems, now even the cops sitting inside the police station in Mumbai will have a glimpse of what's happening inside dance bar, 'live'!
In order to allow them to reopen, the state government of Maharashtra has drafted new rules and regulations for dance bars, in the commercial capital of India.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, if the rules are approved, then every dance bar in the city will have to install CCTV cameras. They have to beam the live feed to the nearest police station.
However, it will be interesting to see that how many people will turn up to the dance bar in order to get them watched... and their activities, 'live' by cops.
It may be recalled that in October, the Apex Court had overturned a Maharashtra government ban on dance bars. The court said the ban violated bar dancers' right to earn a livelihood.
The draft rules also restrict the number of dancers on the floor. The rules prescribe a minimum distance between the audience and the performers which meaning customers can't dance on the floor.
Inside dance bars, smoking would not be allowed, nor would flashing of currency notes be permitted.
