3 run riot at Baga club as bouncers deny them entry



Three persons were arrested by Calangute police on charges of damaging a club and assaulting two bouncers at Tito’s Lane in Baga after they were not allowed entry in the wee hours of Friday.

According to reports, the incident took place at the Down Town club on Friday at about 3 am. The suspects tried to enter the club, but the security bouncers at the door, Vijay and Bhavani, stopped them from entering the premises.

The suspects are alleged to have assaulted the two bouncers with iron rods and wooden sticks. They also allegedly broke the glass door of the club, and smashed the counter.

The injured bouncers were later shifted to a hospital.

The suspects, Nilesh Patil, Durgadas Morajkar, both from Arpora, and Sushil Mahipal from Nagoa, were arrested on the complaint of Tuff Security Agency manager Ganesh Patil.

The police have registered offence under Sections 452, 324, 504, 506 (2), 427 and 32 of IPC and Calangute PI Paresh Naik and Paresh Sinari are investigating the matter.

This is an unusual incident where the bouncers were at the receiving end. In the recent past, bouncers have been accused of beating up tourists and one such case was reported when two Indian tourists were beaten up by bouncers and security guards at the parking lot of a popular night spot in Siolim.

Taking into account the recent attacks on tourists by bouncers and touts, police have cautioned restaurant owners to avoid harassing tourists.
