Two pub bouncers accused of assaulting an Italian and his three Indian friends at an MG Road mall early on Friday surrendered before police on Tuesday.
A local court remanded the duo in judicial custody for 14 days after they gave themselves up at DLF City police station.
The bounders had fled the scene after allegedly thrashing the friends black and blue and had been evading arrest since then. Photographer Frederico Brasola, from Rome, had his arm broken in the incident. On Sunday, Gurgaon’s police commissioner ordered the closure of restro-bar Club Safire until the two men were arrested.
SHO of DLF City police station Rajpal Singh said the pub produced both bouncers — Pradeep Singh and Vijay Kumar.
Besides Brasola, who has been in India for about two months, Inderdeep Dev, an NRI from London, and their two friends were denied entry by the pub's management at 1.30 am as the attire of two of them did not conform to their dress code. The bouncers assaulted them following an altercation.
Pub manager Rakesh Roshan confirmed their pub had been sealed at 12 noon on Sunday.
“Now that we have produced both the accused bouncers and they have been arrested, we hope the police department would allow our pub to reopen,” he said.
“I have been out of work since Friday. I am running out of money as well. It’s a pity that none from the pub has bothered to give me a sympathy call,” Brasola said on Tuesday.
