A 45-year-old businessman was roughed up allegedly by two men travelling in a Honda City after an argument that flared up after their car hit his Wagon R in southwest Delhi’s Dabri on Friday night.
According to sources, the incident took place around 9.30pm meters away from the Dabri police station.

The victim, businessman Nand Lal, was returning to his house in Mangolpuri in outer Delhi when the incident took place. Lal in his statement told the police that he was on his way when a speeding Honda City hit his car from behind.
