“The accused, Amarjit Singh and his sons Prabhjot Singh and Charanjit Singh objected to it, which led to a verbal spat and later the trio thrashed me. My parents rushed out on hearing my cries. My father came to my aid but he too was beaten up, after which he suffered a heart attack and fell to the ground.”

The victim, RK Marwaha, a hosiery store owner, was rushed to the hospital. Yatin said his fathers reports suggest he had also suffered internal bleeding.
