Case filed after four Delhi University students claim bouncers beat them at cafe
NEW DELHI: A group of Delhi University students were allegedly thrashed by bouncers of a cafe near Hudson Lines in north Delhi during an argument over loud music. The students from the law faculty later staged a protest demanding arrest of the bouncers. A case was registered against the bouncers based on their complaint. In the complaint, one of students said that four of them from second year had gone to the eatery for a birthday party. Loud music was being played at the cafe. They requested the manager to reduce the volume since they could not hear each other. One of them went up to the music coordinator asking him to reduce the volume. At this a group of bouncers approached them and started pushing them out of the place. When the students refused to leave, the bouncers — who were allegedly drunk — started thrashing them. Following the incident, several students from the law department reached the cafe and blocked the road demanding the arrest of the bouncers. Soon, cops from nearby police stations were called in to pacify the students. DCP (north-west) Vijayanta Arya said that efforts are on to nab the accused. Despite several attempts by TOI the cafe could not be contacted for comments.
