A case of assault and molestation has been registered against them.
The visuals show men being dragged and punched by the bouncers, who also push the women trying to shield the men. A woman recording the video cries out, "There's blood. Stop now, please," but the bouncers continue with the slapping and punching.
Another clip shows a bouncer using a stick to hit the customers.
The horrifying incident took place late at night on Sunday outside the Casa Danza nightclub in the Udyog Vihar area of the city.
In the FIR, one of the assaulted men – employed with a leading multinational company – has alleged that when they were entering the club, a bouncer touched one of the women in their group inappropriately, to which they objected. The manager then came out and told the bouncers, "Beat them up and throw them out.”
The group later got treatment at a nearby private hospital.
There are also allegations that the bouncers took away a watch and "around Rs 10,000" from one of the men.
