Kindly avoid going to such hotels were raids happen. It is not illegal to stay in hotel if you both are adult and having valid government ID proof. But usually police harass such couples if found. Basically they just try to do moral policing to extract money. Kindly be aware before booking a place.

This is known as moral policing and is not permitted. You can complain to the higher ups of the concerned police officer. Always co-operative with the police for dispensing with their public duty, however without letting your personal freedoms being jeopardised in any manner.
