One killed in Kolkata bar brawl

Kolkata, July 9 (IANS) One person was killed and two injured in firing when they were caught in a clash between employees of a bar and a group of unidentified people here on Thursday, police said.

Police said the bouncers at the bar located at Haridevpur in Kolkata’s southern outskirts got into a heated argument with some unidentified people a little after midnight when they refused to pay for the bar services.

It soon resulted in a clash and 30-35 bullets were fired. A stray bullet hit a nearby pedestrian.

“The gang which had refused to pay carried firearms and bombs. Three locals sustained bullet injuries and had to be rushed to a hospital where one was declared brought dead. The other two are undergoing treatment,” police said.
