A Delhi resident and his friends were allegedly assaulted by two bouncers when they sought a discount on drinks through gift coupons against their bill at a bar on the MG Road on Friday night.
The incident took place when the victims gave two coupons worth R1,600 each to the manager for availing a discount but the latter refused saying “two coupons cannot be clubbed together in one bill.”
The argument between the manager and Delhi resident Sanjeev Jaiwal escalated when two bouncers interfered and allegedly manhandled him.
A case was later registered at the Sector-29 police station against the bar owners and two bouncers.
A police official said, “On Friday night, Jaiwal along with his friends came to D Beer Factory at JMD Mall. After consuming liquor, he gave two coupons to the waiter for availing a discount. The waiter returned after a few minutes and said the two coupons cannot be adjusted one one bill.”
Jaiswal, however, persisted the manager to adjust it but he refused. Later, two bouncers assaulted Sanjeev and forced him to pay the bill. He immediately called up the Sector 29 police.
Refuting the charges, D Beer Factory owner Paramjeet Singh, said, “It was a minor issue over coupons. Two coupons cannot be clubbed together in one bill. The customer later paid the bill and went away. The fight did not take place on the premises of the restaurant but outside the mall.”
Meanwhile, a police official said, “We have registered a case against bar owners Sanjay Saini and Paramjeet Singh. The two bouncers have been booked.”
“Paramjeet and Sanjay were taken to the police station last night and set free after interrogation,” he added. Meanwhile, the police are conducting raids to arrest the accused.
