Kathmandu, October 24: Taking advantage of the long festival season in Nepal, groups from India's Bihar state across the border are bringing hundreds of Indian women to the Himalayan republic to stage obscene nude dance shows, a media report said Sunday.
Private Nepali television station Avenue TV Sunday aired scenes taken with a hidden camera in Saptari district on the Indo-Nepal border where a garden had been turned into an orgiastic scene with scantily clad women cavorting to the tune of Hindi songs.
The report said such dance shows, featuring hundreds of Indian girls, were being organised by groups from Bihar like New Mina and Madhubani Club in connivance with Nepali security officials.
It named at least two senior police officials, alleging they had been among the spectators.
The television station said the dances were obscene with the girls shedding all their clothes, a punishable offence in Nepal.
Journalists from Avenue as well as another private station, Sagarmatha TV, were manhandled by the organisers, the report said.
The news comes as Kathmandu police have begun an anti-vice drive in the capital, cracking down on the city's dance bars and massage parlours that also allegedly serve as a front for prostitution.
Police say some of the well-organised flesh trade rings operating in Kathmandu involve sex workers from India, who are flown in taking advantage of the growing number of flights between India and Nepal.
