Hooligans thrash couple, NRI youth after midnight party at Tuli International’s pub Sadar police have booked two people

Nagpur: Even as the city police are trying to tame the extreme behaviour of drunken hooligans in the dark of the night, few so called pubs being run in plush city hotels are only adding fuel to the fire. In a similar such incident, a young couple along with their NRI friend were ruthlessly beaten by few hooligans in porch area of Hotel Tuli International in Sadar on Saturday night. The incident happened when they were stepping out of the hotel after having a party late night on Saturday at Hotel Tuli International’s pub Rythm and Blues, which usually remains open till wee hours on weekends.

Sadar police have booked two people identifed as Arbaaz and Fahad Baig under section 354-B of IPC upon the complaint of victim’s wife. Cops are reportedly on the hunt for these two men and their other accomplices.

The young couple, who was accompanied by the man’s sister and the NRI friend who came to meet them from Phillipines, reportedly had a spat with another youth who was also in the pub at that night. One of the group members reportedly objected to the comment passed by this youth about the man’s wife while stepping out from the pub.

Later when the youths were walking to the parking area from hotel’s porch, 4-5 men reportedly came in the car (Maruti Ritz) and started beating them.

The victim, who runs auto deal business on CA road, told Nagpur Today, “I had gone to unwind along with my wife, sister and these two friends of mine. Actually we had arranged get together along with this NRI friend at Rythm and Blues pub. As we were getting late, we came out of the pub at around 2 am in the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday. While we reached the porch area, one of the youths commented on my wife, to which one of my friends objected. The matter was settled there only as this man apologised for the same. But as we reached the parking area, few men disembarked from a car and started beating us blue and black. In a bid to save ourselves we ran towards the hotel’s porch area. Meanwhile, those men fled the spot after hearing the police siren.”

The couple later went to Sadar police station to lodge the complaint. They also got the names of the hooligans from the people around.

Talking to Nagpur Today, Sunil Bonde, PI at Sadar Police Station informed that it was the birthday party that night. He said that the scuffle took place between these two groups. There was physical fight but till now nothing like eve-teasing has come to light. “The two accused are still out of trace and further investigation is on,” he added.

When asked about the pub being opened till late, Bonde clarified that as per the rules the bars and pubs in the city have permission to run till 1.30 am in the night.
