Mon 19 Sep 2011 In: International News View at Wayback

Indian police have fined more than 130 guests at a gay party in Mumbai, including a leading Bollywood actor. Guests at the party in the Versova suburb of Mumbai were fined after police interrupted the party after complaints of loud music by locals, according to the Hindustan Times. The party was attended by Bollywood star Bobby Darling, who says: "I was invited to the party by one of my gay friends saying it is his birthday party. I went there as a celebrity guest for the party, for which, I charged him. I did not know it was a gay party. "Later, I learnt that the permission for the party was not taken. And I did not behave indecently...I went to police station after the request of the cops and signed on the papers when they asked me to do so. I did not pay any fine but the party organisers must have paid the fine on my behalf," he added. Guests at the party believed they were targeted because they were gay.
