Cops thrash youngsters after ruckus outside Gurugram pub

Gurugram: The New Year may have arrived upon residents of Gurugram, yet the old challenges of maintaining discipline among rowdy youth still remains a Herculean task.
Angry over being denied entry in a pub at Sahara Mall, a group of youngsters on late Sunday created ruckus, even going so far as to slap a police official.
What followed was the policemen and security guards teaming up to thrash the youngsters.
In order to ensure safety and security in Gurugram, at least 250 cops were deployed at the MG road.
Additionally, MG Road was later turned into a no-entry zone for cars.
Although there are reports of drunken men misbehaving with girls, police officials claimed no such incidents took place on the New Year's night.
MG Road is one of busiest roads in the city where traffic management on routine basis seems to be a big challenge.
However, on big occasions like New Years' eve there are over two lakh vehicles that descend at Mall mile.
Having faced various financial challenges this year, the owners of the pubs want to bring in favourable packages so that this time the footfall is higher than the previous years.
In a major lapse in law and order, thousands of people had thronged the MG Road on the new years eve of 2012 and there were large incidents of molestation that was reported.
The year of 2017 was a difficult for the law enforcement officials. Despite having three police stations guarding the posh locality this year there have been brazen crimes of culpable homicide, molestations, sex trade to even shootouts inside one of the malls.
Further, drunken drivers continue to pose a challenge to law and order situation at MG road even as there have been deployment of personnel by the Gurugram police to improve the conditions at Mall Mile.
