A group of youth, including the vice president of a private company, was allegedly thrashed by bouncers at a pub in south Delhi’s Aurobindo market last week.
The police have launched a probe into the matter though no formal case has been registered as yet.
“While the youths claim that the bouncers misbehaved with them, the pub staff alleged the youths stepped out of the pub with their drinks insisting that they would drink on the staircase. This led to an argument and the youth argued with the staff. The pub staff called the police, alleging that the youths were creating a ruckus outside the watering hole. We need to verify both claims before registering an FIR,” a senior police officer said.
The incident was reported late on Friday night when the youths, Ishan and Sushant, had gone to the pub for dinner. According to them, Ishaan carried his bottle of beer to the staircase of the pub. The pub staff objected as they were closing for the day. This led to an argument between them and a scuffle ensued. The youths were injured.
A friend of one of the alleged victims later wrote about the incident on her Facebook page. “They were on the staircase finishing their drinks when two bouncers asked them to hurry up since the bar was closing. We told them that we are just finishing and going and that’s when suddenly one of the bouncers slapped my friend Ishaan, pushed him to the ground, and abused him. They also took out lathis and started to hit both my friends!!!,” the Facebook post read.
The woman claimed that she called the PCR immediately but got no response. “Seeing this ruthless behaviour, other guests jumped into the fight as well to defend us. Our other friends who were trying to salvage the situation got pushed, manhandled. My women friends including me got hurt as well,” she wrote.
The woman claimed that she had take her friends to the hospital.
The police said that the investigation in the matter is on.
