Kolkata, Dec 22 : After a 22-year-old man died from the beating by bouncers at a bar, an angry mob rampaged at the building in Dum Dum's Shyamnagar area in Kolkata on Saturday evening, with the protesters disrupting traffic by placing the body on the road.

Madhav Das, a resident of Naskarpara near Chinar Park, had gone to Kingston Bar near Shelly Cinema around 9.30 pm on Thursday.
