An investigation regarding this event started when authorities spotted an invitation that was published through social media. A private room was prepared by the restaurant inside their property to host the guests. When the authorities came to the location, the management of the restaurant attempted to deny the fact that they had been receiving guests to attend the party in their restaurant. The authorities decided to inspect the restaurant around 5:10pm. “During our inspection, we found 11 people inside one of their rooms.” AKBP Roby added.
