Bhubaneswar: It was a humid February night. Thousands had paid Rs 200 to watch the dance of item girls at Khandagiri’s annual fair. Just when the mood was setting in, an item girl’s obscene antics enraged the audience. Matters became so worse that the police had to step in today.
The incident so happened that one Kuna (pseudonym) along with his friends was enjoying the dance of item girl Rani Panda. The audience was matching their rhythm to her intoxicated steps as well. In a sudden twist of events, Rani came down the stage and walked up to Kuna. She bit his ear in the heat of the moment and left him injured. Allegedly, she also went up the stage and stripped naked to continue her dance.
The entire incident enraged the locals. While most of them left the scene, the matter snowballed into am major controversy today after videos of the item girl’s obscene antics went viral. After a police complaint by Kalinga Sena, Khandagiri police took matter into their hands. Under strict orders by Commissioner of Police Satyajit Mohanty, the Inspector-in0pcharge called in a meeting of all the dance group producers and warned them to not indulge in objectionable shows. The producers have also been asked to direct their dancers not to wear scanty clothing and perform suggestive movements.
Seems that the item girl has danced her way into trouble!
