It was on July 22 that the police raided Rimpu Bagan and found many young boys and girls openly drinking on the premises, inside the rooms as well as inside the vehicles.

The five children which include 4 boys and one girl were also found locked inside a dingy cabin-like unhygienic room and were later handed over to the District Child Protection Officer (DCPO) for safe custody.
