Around 1:30 am on Sunday, the woman and her businessman husband - who had visited the pub to meet friends -- were standing in the reserved section. The four men, who also were at the section, allegedly became angry over the couple's presence and an argument started. The couple allege they pushed the women and groped her before beating her up.
Hearing the commotion, the management stepped in and the men were thrown out of the pub.
A case was filed at the local police station after the woman lodged a complaint. Statements of eye-witnesses have been recorded by the police but no arrests have been made so far. One of the patrons at the pub had also identified one of the accused. The police have managed to identify the rest.
The case had triggered a political storm, with the opposition Left Front accusing the Mamata Banerjee government of laxity in law and order. The Chief Minister had called it a political conspiracy.
