Kolkata bar shootout: Three more arrested

Kolkata, July 13 (IANS) Three more people were arrested on Monday, taking the number of accused who have been taken into custody to five over the recent brawl in a bar in Kolkata which left a middle-aged man dead and two others injured.

A youth in his early 20s was nabbed from Sonarpur in neighbouring South 24 Parganas district. Two others were arrested from North 24 Parganas district, police said.

Around 30-35 bullets were fired and bombs hurled indiscriminately during the shootout.

Police said bouncers at the bar had got into a heated argument with some unidentified people a little after midnight when they refused to pay for the bar services. The free-trippers left, but came back some time later in more numbers and started firing indiscriminately.

During the brawl, a stray bullet hit a nearby pedestrian who was later declared dead when rushed to a hospital. Two others also sustained injuries.
