Pub staff evicts woman for staying beyond close, booked

Shiva and Ganeshyam roughed up the bouncers, while Rakshitha tripped on the stairways and fell.

A woman lodged a complaint against a pub manager who forcibly evicted her and two of her male friends as they stayed beyond stipulated hours.

Authorities penalise pubs if they remain open beyond 1 am, but Rakshitha (name changed) and her friends Shiva and Ganeshyam stayed at the pub on Indiranagar’s 100 Feet Road till 1.15 am on March 3.

When Farooq, manager of 657 Wall Street Bar and Kitchen, and staff told Rakshitha and her companions to leave the place as it was beyond permitted hours, the three refused. “We usually clear our patrons by 12.30 am,” said Pradeep, the pub’s accountant. “Our waiters told them several times the pub was closed for the day, but the three refused to listen.” 

Staff even explained the excise department officials would come on rounds and file a case if they found the pub open. But the three engaged in argument with Farooq. In the end, the manager asked his bouncers to throw them out.

Shiva and Ganeshyam roughed up the bouncers, while Rakshitha tripped on the stairways and fell. “We couldn’t call the police to evict them because they’d ask us why we kept the pub open beyond the stipulated hours. So, we forced them out,” Pradeep said.

An enraged Rakshitha and her friends went to Indiranagar station in an inebriated condition and filed a complaint against Farooq and his staff. She accused them of sexually assaulting her and attacking her companions. The police are yet to summon Farooq and the pub staff for questioning.
