What comes to your mind when you hear the word Bouncers?
Well built, muscular guys who are hired by the pubs to protect customers from rowdies and heavily drunk goons.
Customers are supposed to feel safe due to their presence but a recent case has proved otherwise. How are we supposed to feel safe when these guys show their dark monstrous side that isn’t afraid to even kill somebody?
Bouncers of The wine company in Cyber Hub allegedly thrashed an NRI and his two friends, when they refused to leave the pub even after the bar was closed for the day.
UK resident Rahul Laxman visited the wine company with his two friends Ishant and Siddhartha for drinks.
Late night,at 1:30 pm when bartender asked them to leave they insisted on having few more drinks. But when pub manager refused to serve them, it resulted in a brawl and refusal to foot the bill. Bouncers were called to handle the matter but they allegedly went berserk and used baseball bats and broken bottles to harm the trio.
Trio were rushed to the hospital and have been discharged.
FIR has been filed by the victims against the bouncers.
“We were at the bar and arguments broke out between us and the bar manager over the bill. We were trying to resolve the issue, but suddenly the bouncers attacked us. They even beat us with baseball bats, which left me with a broken tooth. Ishant sustained a cut on his neck,” Rahul said in his complaint.
An FIR has been registered against the unidentified bouncers of The Wine Company under sections 147 (rioting), 148 (unlawful assembly), 323 (causing hurt), 324 (causing hurt by dangerous weapon), 325 (for voluntarily causing grievous hurt) and 34 (common intention) of the IPC at DLF-II police station.
Police is looking into the matter and action will be taken after verifying the CCTV footage.
Was such violence really necessary or was it an overreaction to a simple argument which could have been taken care of logically? Even if they refused to pay the bill, is it fine to take law in our own hands instead of calling the police?
