The Delhi Police’s licensing branch has suspended the license of a pub in south Delhi’s Greater Kailash where a man was shot at last month, officials said today. The 30-year-old man was shot at by another person inside the pub on December 30. Initially, it was suspected that the incident was a fallout of an argument at the pub. Later, it emerged that the victim was shot at since he had an argument with the accused over a parking issue in November. An inquiry was ordered into the shooting incident since the pub was open beyond 1 am, a senior police officer said. After findings by district vigilance, five beat officers of M Block Market, GK-I were sent to district lines.

They were asked to explain the reason for their misconduct, said Romil Baaniya, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South). A show-cause notice has been issued to the Station House Officer of the Greater Kailash police station and division staff for explaining their misconduct, he said.
