High-voltage drama was witnessed at the Metro Cash and Carry wholesale store in Ludhiana was gatecrashed, even vandalised, by discount-loving shoppers on Saturday. The store had announced a stock clearance sale.

Managers allowed visitors to shop without the otherwise-mandatory customer card, but the rush, non-availability of some products, and denial of some offers led to a ruckus.
