After finding drunk women creating ruckus near discotheques, the Chandigarh police have directed disco owners to hire women bouncers to deal with such situations. The development came after five women were arrested recently in Sector 26 for creating ruckus near a disco.

The police also face a lot of hardships in combating such situations, especially during late night parties held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Chandigarh senior superintendent of police (SSP) Dr Sukhchain Singh Gill said they had decided to assign five women constables to the police stations concerned so that they could deal with violent incidents in which women were involved.

He said they had also asked the local station house officers to make sure that the disco owners got women bouncers.

In two recent incidents, women were among those who created ruckus after having drinks in the discos and the police had arrested women for creating nuisance at public places.

One of the senior officers said it was difficult to deploy cops at every nook and cranny to deal with drunk brats and disco lovers.

He said they had already deployed cops at various places to maintain law and order.

Claiming sector 26 is a hub of discos, the senior officer said around seven discos were functioning in sector 26 and they have been facing a lot of problems as they could not deploy cops in front of every disco.

He also said the incident turned violent when the youngsters tried to have stag entry (without female partner) and it was duty of the disco to deal with and inform the police.
