A hotel manager and his senior citizen colleague were allegedly subjected to road rage by three drunken men in south Delhi on Wednesday morning, the police said. One of the accused has been arrested.
According to police, the incident was reported from near Radisson Hotel at the Rangpuri roundabout in Vasant Kunj around 11am, when Krishan Kumar and his associate BP Gaur, 66, were en route to IGI's Terminal-3 for a meeting.
"Kumar was on his way to the GMR office from Hotel Saptgiri in Mehram Nagar, where he works, when a car coming from the Gurgaon side rammed his Alto car from the left," said an officer. Even as Kumar and Gaur struggled to regain their senses, the men occupying the offending vehicle pulled them out and began assaulting them.
The leader of the trio, police were told, claimed that his father was a Station House Officer (SHO) in the Delhi Police and that he would 'take care' of them, thanks to his father's position.
"According to Kumar, the men were reeking of alcohol and had slapped them. Two of them fled the scene immediately afterwards. The victims were able to note down the number on their registration plate and able to overpower and detain one of the men," the officer said.
The police said that Kumar and Gaur had refused to get a medical examination done since they were unhurt. Meanwhile, Sandeep Nehra, the man the victims were able to detain, was arrested from the spot. "We are looking for the other two. A case of rash and negligent driving in addition to causing hurt has been registered," the officer added.
