The bouncers physically removed the accused from the disco, following which, one of the youths took out a gun and started firing indiscriminately.

The Sector 3 police have registered a case against the accused under Sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 34 of the IPC and 25-27-54-59 of the Arms Act.

As per the CCTV footage, the accused had entered the disco at about 11:35pm on Sunday and had drinks.

They danced till 2am and even threw currency notes in the air.

When the accused insisted on having more drinks, the club staff told them that the bar was closed.

The accused then asked the staff to allow them to smoke on the floor.

After this the bouncers threw them out of the club.

One of the accused then went to parking lot and picked a gun from their car after breaking its windowpane as he could not find the key.
