A purported video of a girl negotiating a deal with a customer in a dance bar in Bhubaneswar has surfaced on Tuesday.

In the exclusive video available with OTV, the bar girl was seen sitting beside a customer after the completion of the dance while the owner of a bar was heard encouraging her to finalise a deal with the customer.

The 'deal' video emerged close on the heels of two bar girls bringing serious allegations of illegal activities in the bar. They had alleged before the camera that all sorts of illegal activities were being encouraged at the bar. They had even lodged a complaint at the Capital Police Station.  

Following the complaint, Capital Police had summoned four persons from the bar and interrogated them.

The Excise Department has served a notice to the concerned bar and asked it to deposit CCTV footage of the past one month including of that night reported by the complainants.

Moreover, amid the crackdown of the Excise Department on dance bars in Bhubaneswar, the video footage of the ruckus between the bar girls and the bar staff in the concerned dance bar in Bhubaneswar has gone viral.

Meanwhile, the department has formed a four-member squad to investigate the matter and curb the alleged illegal activities in the bars.
