Mumbai: At the venue of Spanish pop star Enrique Iglesias’s concert in Pune last night, the local police resorted to a mild lathicharge, even though the performance remained undisturbed.
According to reports, as per the police, the incident happened after bouncers deputed by the event organisers misbehaved with assistant commissioner of police (ACP) VT Pawar.
However, 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.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Manoj Patil said that the police are investigating the circumstances which led to the alleged complaint and a decision on admitting an FIR would be taken later.
When contacted, ACP Pawar said police had to enforce security measures at the concert as the organisers were allowing people inside the venue without proper frisking.
