New Delhi, June 2: In a shocking incident in south Delhi's Shahpur Jat area, a 32-year old IT professional was beaten by bricks and iron rods after he requested his neighbors to remove the vehicle from the gate of his house.
Rajiv Pawar had to undergo a minor surgery with two stitches on the head and bruise on arms and legs. He said that he had only requested his neighbors to remove their vehicle from the front of his gate as it was blocking the entrance.
His neighbour, Sravan Kumar, however, got angry and started hitting him along with his relatives.
Pawar said,"When I saw the car parked outside my house, I went to Shravan's house and asked him to remove the vehicle. I told him I am waiting outside and he should send someone. I waited for over 20 minutes but no one turned up. I again went to their house and said they should remove the vehicle. Instead of cooperating, Shravan's brother started abusing me and threatened to kill me."
Speaking about the assaulters, Pawar further added,"They all came out of the house in a gang and attacked me. One of them kept shouting ‘teach him a lesson'. They threw a marble slab on my head and attacked me with bricks. One of them got an iron rod and started hitting me. As I tried to escape, they cornered me and pushed me to the ground. They punched and kicked me till I started bleeding. One of them threw a wooden plank at me. I somehow managed to escape and made a PCR call."
Based on Pawar's complaint and CCTV footage, police have registered a case of voluntarily causing hurt, wrongful restraint and criminal intimidation against the accused and his five relatives.
