The Saturday night incident, where a fight between some youth and bouncers at a pub turned violent, has put a big question mark on governing security staff at clubs.
The Gurgaon police are planning to formulate a policy to tame bouncers and avert such incidents.
Deputy commissioner of police (east) Maheshwar Dyal said, “We need to be more strict and make sure all employers get their bouncers verified. If not done, it will be seen as a big lapse on the management’s part. Now, if any bouncer is involved in such cases, he would not be appointed elsewhere.”
Ajay Bedi, a friend of Tumul Bhardwaj who is undergoing treatment at Max Hospital, “There should be some guidelines for bouncers too. If they are well-built, it’s not for spreading terror. Residents who visit pubs don’t deserve such a treatment.”
“Bouncers are for security, not to overpower residents,” he added.
Vishal Sharma, who provides bouncers to pubs said, “We simply look at the physique, height and weight of the applicant. He should be minimum 5’10” with a good built. However, we do not go for police verification as it the employer’s duty to get it done.”
