RANCHI: Irked by the growing nuisance at bars and restaurants in the state capital here, police have asked all owners to deploy bouncers to check such incidents.
"Everyday, you hear that some youths, after having a few drinks, broke tables or were engaged in brawls with the managers or among themselves, leading to serious nuisance and threat to law and order," said Praveen Kumar Singh, senior superintendent of police.
"We will not tolerate this and police are keeping a close eye on such incidents," he warned. Singh added that a notice in this regard will soon be released by the Ranchi police, asking bar and restaurant owners to deploy trained marshalls or bouncers.
The city has seen a spurt in bars and restaurants and according to police, more then 150 beer bars are running with no appropriate measures of security. "Since we cannot deploy policemen at all bars and restaurants, we have asked them to make their own arrangements," said the SSP.
He even said that the bars and restaurants, which do not comply with the directive, could lead to the cancellation of licenses. "At many bars, orchestra and dance programmes are held, where these are often reported," Singh added.
"We have recently cancelled the licences of bars where fights and nuisance were reported almost every day," said Singh, adding that those shops or bars selling spurious liquor or drinks without appropriate permission were under police radar and surprise checking will be launched soon.
In another incident, police unearthed a mini-gun factory at Soso village under Chano police station of the district and seized two countrymade rifles and parts for around 10 arms.
Acting on a tip-off, teams from Chano and Mandar police stations raided the house of one Murshid Alam and unearthed the factory. "These parts could be assembled into 10 country-made rifles," said the SSP.
He added that Alam had been to jail earlier also in connection with the manufacture of arms and has been supplying those to local criminals and rebel outfits like CPI(Maoist), People's Liberation Front of India and Jharkhand Liberation Tiger.
