Youth may have been shot at due to tiff over dancing with bar dancer
Kolkata: A day after two youth were shot at by some miscreants at a high security zone near the Bangladesh High Commission office, the police have come to know that the incident may have occurred over a quarrel about who will dance with the crooner in a pub.
With the progress in the investigation, the police gathered some evidences that suggest that the victims Hayder Ahmed and Parvez Ahmed had gotten into a quarrel with some youth when the latter had asked them not to dance with a crooner in a bar. A scuffle also broke out between the two groups. Hayder and Parvez attacked the other group members who had stopped them from participating in the dancing.
The matter was, however, settled through the intervention of the other people and the security personnel in the pub. To take a revenge, the other group members, suspected to be familiar with the victims might have hired some other miscreants to kill the duo. While returning home, Hayder and Parvez were standing on near the Bangladesh High Commission's office at around 10 pm on Monday night when four miscreants came on two motorcycles and fired indiscriminately at them. Initially, police thought that this could be a result of business rivalry as the two youth were involved in syndicate business.
After hearing the gun shot, the local residents rushed to the spot and sent them to Calcutta National Medical College and Hospital. They were later shifted to a private hospital at Ekbalpore as their health condition deteriorated. According to the doctors, their health condition is critical. Police are interrogating the bar employees and the bar dancers who were present during the brawl.
