Eight young men were arrested in connection with the assault on a 27-year-old chief security officer of a restaurant in New Delhi 12 days ago, police said on Saturday.

Bhupender Nagar, who was working at Jynxx, a restaurant, in Nehru Place, was chased, threatened with a firearm and assaulted near Surya Hotel at New Friends colony on February 13.

A senior police official said eight persons, including the main accused Rocky, were arrested.

"Nagar was attacked after he denied them entry to the club. To avenge the insult, they started following him as soon as he left the club at 5 am on February 13," the official said.

Four men were caught on CCTV footage of Surya Hotel, threatening Nagar by showing a firearm and beating his friends with iron rods.

The accused had allegedly created ruckus in the club two months ago and since then, their entry was banned.
