About 40 couples were dragged out of their hotel rooms and taken to a nearby police station where they were held for several hours and some were even made to call their parents.

Witnesses say police knocked on the doors to the hotel rooms during the Thursday afternoon raid, and arrested all couples found to be unmarried.

Despite being in private hotel rooms, the couples were charged with 'indecent behaviour in public' and made to pay a fine of 1,200 rupees (£12).
