Tuesday 24 July 2012

Two IPL players- Wayne Parnell from South Africa and Rahul Sharma, are among 42 persons, who tested positive for consumption of drugs in a high-profile rave party at a plush hotel in suburban Juhu in May, making their arrest inevitable, police said today. Police today received reports of blood samples of 44 of the 90 people, who had attended the sundown party at Oakwood Premier Hotel in Juhu in May. "Of the 44, two females tested negative, while the rest are positive," Deputy Police Commissioner Pratap Dighaokar told PTI. These 44 people include two IPL cricketers Parnell and Sharma (both played for Pune Warriors India) and 38 women, police sources said. On June 22, city police had declared the results of 46 of the 90 people's blood samples, who attended the party, in which 44 tested positive, police said. Police had on May 20 raided the posh hotel and rounded up 90 patrons, including foreigners, following specific inputs about the presence of drugs at the party. They were let off after their urine and blood samples were taken.
