The manager of the Pool House, aged 25 and originally from the village, was also present. He was also arrested. The police accused him for opening the doors of his trade in prohibited hours and for allowing minors to access the pool house. He was verbalized.
The police officers informed the students’ parents. College students and the other people who were in the pool house during prohibited hours were also verbalized. They were then allowed to leave.
The day of Teacher’s Day, the officers made a police raid in Goodlands. The police went into two pool houses of the region. 36 tickets were drawn up against them.
