Youth beaten outside south Delhi pub succumbs to injuries

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A 23-year-old youth, who suffered severe injuries after allegedly being beaten up by a group of men outside a south Delhi pub last week, died today.

The police added Section 302 (murder) of the IPC in the FIR registered in connection with the incident and arrested one of the accused persons, a police official said.

According to police, the incident was reported on October 21 night, when the youth, identified as Rupesh, and his friend Rohit had gone to a pub in south Delhi's Hauz Khas area.

There they entered into an argument with a group of men.

However, they were asked to leave the pub before the situation could get worse.

When Rupesh realised that he had left his phone at the pub, he returned there to enquire. The group held him outside the entrance and allegedly thrashed him. They had fled the spot by the time a police team reached there.

Police rushed Rupesh to a hospital and his condition was reported critical. He succumbed to his injuries this evening.

Rupesh owns a garment showroom at Chhatarpur at the same premises where his friend Rahul owns a hair salon, according to the police.

The accused arrested by the police has been identified as Tarun, son of an east Delhi-based businessman.

The police are now looking for his associates who were allegedly involved in the brawl, the official added.
