Revellers thrash cops when asked to lower music volume at party in Gariahat
Kolkata Police arrested eleven persons, including three women on the charge of thrashing on-duty cops. All of them were produced before the court. All of them, except a lady, got conditional bail from the court.
The accused were enjoying a party where they were dancing with songs playing in high volume from several speakers.
The neighbours felt uneasy and irritated and called up the organisers and asked them to stop the music which was playing loudly, causing serious problems for the neighbours, especially the elderly people. But the main organiser Satrajit Ghosh Das, who was celebrating birthday party with his friends, paid no heed to them.
The neighbours then called up the police to stop the cacophony right away. The police team went to the spot, at 41B Gariahat Road. They went upstairs to meet the organiser and tried to convince them to stop the music. They also told them to enjoy the party without playing music at such a high volume. They reportedly agreed to lower the music volume.
But after the policemen had moved out from the building, the revellers barged into a neighbour’s place and started to beat up an old lady Ranu Pramanik and her sons. The other neighbours then called up the police again. When they came, the policemen faced a sudden opposition from two to three girls among the revellers. The girls allegedly were intoxicated and started to beat up the policemen. Later, a force from the Gariahat police station reached there to arrest the revellers.
In another incident, a LPG deliver man was arrested at Salt Lake City on the charge of molesting a lady. Police arrested the gas delivery man Sujoy Manna after getting the complaint from the lady who is the resident of GC-222. “We have captured the CCTV footage where we saw the entire incident. Then we contacted the LPG delivery agency to arrest the man,” said a policeman.
