    City restaurants not going to be closed: Hospitality Worker’s Association

    Guwahati: The All Assam Hospitality Worker’s Association (AAHWA) has denied the reports of closure of city-based eateries for two days. The clarification came amidst reports of Guwahati restaurants likely to be closed for two days doing rounds on the internet.

    The reports claimed that the association has decided to shut down the business of city-based restaurants for two days soon demanding justice for one of the chefs working in a city hotel who was thrashed by customers recently. 

    Speaking to TIME8, general secretary of the association Sailen Das said, “We are not closing the restaurants in the city. We have already faced a huge loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic induced lockdown and we are not ready to bear more such losses.”

    “Our workers have also suffered due to the lockdown. Moreover, the police are investigating the matter and have arrested one accused. Hopefully, they will be able to arrest all the accused involved.”

    The incident occurred when a group of six men allegedly beat up the chef for serving food late on December 30 last year. Due to a slight delay in serving the item to the customers, they allegedly forced their way into the kitchen and started arguing and later manhandled the chef.

    A case was registered at the Dispur Police Station but police allegedly did not act promptly and a majority of the accused persons were not arrested till the filing of this report.
