A 30-year-old woman has alleged that she has been molested and assaulted at a nightclub at Kolkata's iconic Part Street.
The victim has claimed that a group of drunk men assaulted her in front of her husband while she was at a bar on Park street this Saturday night.
The lady, a young mother of a two-month-old child has alleged that a group of men at the bar opposed the couples' entry into a 'reserved' area which they claimed had been booked by them.
'They groped me and pushed me on the ground. They said we were encroaching into their private space as they had booked the area,' the victim told India Today.
The couple has filed an FIR against the son of a wealthy businessman in Kolkata, whom they allege was the main culprit behind the assault.
WHAT HAPPENED AT THE NIGHTCLUB?
According to the victim, the person who assaulted her was heavily drunk and even threatened the couple stating that he was well connected. The culprit apparently told the victim, 'You don't know who my dad is. So, don't mess around with us.'
The young couple say they went to M-Bar on Park Street on Saturday night to meet another couple who were their friends.
When they sat in the reserved area to meet their friends, the perpetrator, whom they have identified as the son of a prominent Kolkata businessman came and assaulted them.
It was after the intervention of the club owners and bouncers that the couple could manage to escape.
DEMANDS OF THE VICTIMS
The victim, who has recently given birth to her child, says she is yet to regain her full health and the incident has left her shaken. 'Which place is safe for us girls?' she asks adding that she wants the police to act fast.
'This is nothing but blatant arrogance of wealth. The perpetrator must be arrested immediately. It has been more than 24 hours,' the victim's husband told India Today.
POLICE INVESTIGATION SO FAR
While the couple lodged a police complaint on Sunday, the local Shakespeare Sarani police station is yet to arrest anyone in the case.
Police have sought the CCTV footage from the bar and a case has been registered under section 354 and other relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The incident has once again brought back memories of the infamous Park Street rape case where a Anglo-Indian woman was gang raped inside a moving vehicle while she was returning from a nightclub in the area with her friends.
