According to the police, the people in the resort were in the age group of 18 to 25. Most of them were college students although a few IT professionals were also at the party. The participants had paid close to Rs 3,000 for entry. Police further claimed that they had landed up at the resort after a tip-off that a group of rowdies was gathering there.   

The New Indian Express report state that the police had seized liquor bottles and adhesives (that were used as intoxicants), LSD stamps, MDMA tablets, cocaine and 300 grams of marijuana. "We could recover only a small amount of drugs and alcohol as the party was almost over. Except for the 16 organisers of the party, others were let off on station bail for the consumption of banned drugs and their parents were called. Only after their parents arrived were they allowed to go home. Some students are still at the marriage hall where they were detained as their parents are coming from other southern states,” said Inspector Ravikumar.

Meanwhile, Deputy Superintendent of Police R Subburaju said "The Odour Resort, a three-star hotel, is located just 1.5 km from the Mahabalipuram shore temple. We surrounded the resort at around 1 am on Monday and nabbed the people inside. We could hear loud noises even as we were arriving ... There seemed to be an unlimited supply of alcohol, marijuana and other synthetic drugs."

The police stopped the party and nabbed everyone who was trying to escape. Around 153 people were taken to a private marriage hall in Mahabalipuram and seven women were taken to the All Women Police Station for inquiry. Prabhu (34) from Ayanavaram had organised the party and posted about a DJ party through "High Tech Revolution" website, the New Indian express further added.
