Acting on a tip-off, NCB officials led by Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede boarded the ship disguised as passengers on Saturday. The raid was underway for over seven hours and is still ongoing.

Zonal Director of NCB, Sameer Wankhede and his team took all the detainees to the NCB office in South Mumbai. They will soon be sent for medical examination to a nearby government hospital, said NCB officials to ascertain whether they had consumed drugs.

The rave party was organised onboard Cordelia Cruises' Empress Ship from October 2 to October 4. It was to be a 'musical voyage' with a hundred tickets on sale.

It was also revealed that several people who had come to Mumbai from another state to travel in the ship were not allowed to board citing a reason that their server was not working. The event was allegedly overbooked leading to several people being left stranded and unable to board the ship.
