Bangalore: Reacting strongly on the rave party incident in St Mary`s Island near Malpe coast in Udupi district, Karnataka Chief Minister DV Sadananda Gowda said that incidents of these kinds will not be ‘tolerated’. He added that an inquiry had been ordered into it.

In a stern message the CM said, “It has gone beyond the limit and will not be tolerated.”

The rave party controversy created uproar in the state Assembly on Tuesday with the Opposition seeking an answer from the government. The Congress also demanded action against the errant officials.

The event in question, Spring Zouk, was organized by the Udupi district administration and the 3W Concepts in the first week of February. It was aimed at promoting tourism in the state. The scandal hit the headlines when video footages showed a foreign couple in an objectionable state. It is being alleged that drugs, narcotics and liquor were used by the foreigners who were present at the party. Also, reports are doing rounds of nude and half-nude women being seen at the place.

When asked about the incident Udupi DCP Dr MT Raju said that he asked the police to investigate the matter.

Meanwhile, the foreigners who had come to take part in the incident have left town.
