During the entry one of the bouncers touched my friend inappropriately and when she objected a few other bouncers came to the spot and called their manager Lokesh and Santosh. My friend then complained to the duo manager about molestation. The managers then ordered the bouncers to beat us and throw out all of us from the club,” Mayank told the police.
“Thereafter, around 8-10 bouncers in black clothes and the duo managers joined together and beat me and my friends with sticks and slapped us multiple times and pushed us to the ground in front of the club and on the road. They even snatched Pushpak’s I-watch and Rs 10,000-12,000 from my pocket,” the complainant alleged in his complaint.
“Due to a traffic jam they left us on the road and the two managers threatened us with dire consequences and returned to the club,” the complainant told the police.
