Police resorted to a mild lathicharge at the venue of Spanish pop star Enrique Iglesias’s concert in Pune on Wednesday night. The performance was not disturbed.
Police claimed they had to act after bouncers deputed by the event organisers heckled assistant commissioner of police (ACP) VT Pawar, but the organisers accused the police officer of attacking them when they objected to his trying to get several guests of his in free for the show.
The senior inspector of the Hadaspur police station, CD Jadhav, said the bouncers acted up when Pawar questioned the organisers about the “mismanagement” of the crowd.
However, the concert organizers, OML, in a press release, accused ACP Pawar of assaulting them when they asked him how many guests he wanted to be allowed in free.
No police complaint was filed either by the police or the organisers till the time of going to press.
