Five booked for ruckus at pub

A group of five youths, which included the son of a prominent builder, created a ruckus at a bar and pub on the Palace Grounds, on Sunday night, and allegedly assaulted a cop who tried to intervene. 

The youth, all in their early 20s, included a girl and Karan Virwani, son of builder Jitendra Virwani, of Embassy Property Developments. Police said they got a call from Pebble Bar and Pub that a group of youth had vandalised the bar and was creating a ruckus. A team of police officials, including a woman constable, from High Grounds Police Station, rushed to the spot. 

According to police, when they arrived, a group of youth was fighting with the bouncers of the pub and exchanging blows. As the police tried to intervene, the youth abused them and one of them threw a stone at a policeman, which missed the target. The police team soon overpowered the youth and brought them to High Grounds police station. 

Counter complaints

Pebble Bar and Pub Manager, Mathew, in his complaint, has stated that the group was smoking in the pub despite it being a no-smoking zone. When objected, they abused the pub staff, and bouncers were called in to send them out.  However, the youth attacked the bouncers. Mathew has alleged that the all of them were smoking ganja.

When brought to High Grounds Police Station, an officer said Karan Virwani took the name of Home Minister K J George and his son Rana George. His father Jitendra Virwani too arrived at the police station but did not intervene in matter. 

Karan has also lodged a complaint against pub manager Mathew and unnamed bouncers on assault charge. A police constable with High Grounds  has lodged a complaint against Ayush, Julian and two others for trying to obstruct public servants from discharging their duty. 

Karan has been admitted to Columbia Asia Hospital, having suffered minor injuries in the melee.Cases have been registered on all the three complaints, police said.
