New Delhi: A 42-year-old resident of west Delhi's Moti Nagar, Suresh Kumar, who organised nude dance shows for his customers in the capital for seven months, ran out of his luck when the police arrested 10 semi-nude bar dancers and nine of his clients from a hotel, officials said on Monday.

Suresh Kumar, and his accomplice Dalbir Singh, a resident of Tilak Nagar, were arrested on Sunday night for organising an obscene DJ dance party at the Prince Palace Hotel in New Moti Nagar industrial area.

Sleuths of Delhi Police's Crime Branch said it was the eighth time when the duo had called 10 bar dancers from Mumbai to perform an "obscene dance show" to entertain clients here.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) Anil Shukla said the duo were arranging such dance shows for the past six-seven months. They charged Rs.1,500 from each customer who watched the shows.

"Following a tip-off, we conducted a raid at the hotel and found nine customers in obscene condition with 10 semi-nude girls. All the 10 girls and nine customers were arrested," Shukla said.

"Audio CDs containing obscene songs were also seized. During investigation it was found that Singh had arranged for the girls from Mumbai and was acting as conduit," he added.

Singh, in his interrogation, admitted he arranged for the girls who earlier had worked as dancers in various Mumbai bars.

As the Maharashtra government banned the dance bars, these girls lost their jobs and many of them turned to prostitution.

Taking advantage of the situation, Singh lured some girls to perform nude dances in parties in Delhi, Shukla said.

The police said Kumar was a fruit vendor before he took the hotel on lease for Rs.20,000 per month.
