MANGALURU: The city police has launched a probe after right-wing activists allegedly disrupted a party organised by a few college students in a pub on Monday night.
City police commissioner N Shashi Kumar visited the pub located in Mangaluru North police station limits along with a team of senior police officials. He told reporters on Monday that the department is likely to take up a case if statements from either the victims or pub personnel lead to the initiation of the legal process.
“We are inquiring about the students who had come to the pub and also the pub personnel. If there are complaints from them, necessary legal action will be taken,” Shashi Kumar said.
It is learnt that a few right-wing activists had been to a pub near Balmatta and asked the bouncer about the age of the students partying inside. The bouncer took the matter to the pub manager who, in turn, inquired the students about their age. Soon, the students left the place, the commissioner said.
So far there has been no report of students being assaulted inside the pub. The bouncer told us that the activists were outside the pub. The police have contacted the pub owner who is in Mumbai to get access to CCTV footage of the premises. The footage will reveal more about the incident, the police chief said.
If the pub was found to be serving liquor to those aged under 21, the police and excise department will initiate necessary action.
Meanwhile, the commissioner clarified that preliminary investigation revealed that the students present at the pub had no links with the minor students of a city college, whose videos had recently gone viral.
