BJYM makes a din at Jubilee Hills pub

We strongly condemn this and will make sure that this does not go on any further, said an activist.

Hyderabad: Activists of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) marched into Vapor Brew Pub at Jubilee Hills late on Saturday night alleging that the establishment was serving alcohol to minors and staying open beyond the permissible hours. Managers of the pub called the police when the activists began staging a protest.

“Pub culture is the root cause of recurring accidents in the area. The pub serves alcohol to minors who drive rashly in an inebriated state. We strongly condemn this and will make sure that this does not go on any further,” said an activist.

According to the pub staff, the activists barged in around the closing time. “They came in at around 11.30 pm and began abusing the public and creating a ruckus in our pub. After cornering the customers, they consumed the alcohol at the tables. They blocked the entrance for an hour so that nobody could leave, just to show the cops that we were open until late night,” said Priyatosh for Vapor Brew Pub.

S.K. Purna Chander, the Inspector of Jubilee Hills, said, “We reached the pub at about midnight and checked the ID cards of the customers. No minors were found there. We booked a case for trespassing against the BJYM activists.”

The Jubilee Hills police booked cases against the activists under Sections 448 (trespass), 341 (wrongful restraint), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the IPC and started an investigation.

Earlier this year, in July, members of the Youth Congress had conducted a rally and walked into clubs in Jubilee Hills to create awareness about the ill-effects of drugs among the youngsters.
