Four security guards of a private airlines company allegedly assaulted an executive of a multi-national cellular service provider in the parking lot of Udyog Vihar.
Police sources said the altercation took place on the issue of parking the executive’s vehicle around 8.30pm on Thursday evening.
The victim suffered multiple fractures and was rushed to a private hospital. The accused fled from the spot.
Victim Anuj Rastogi (27), a resident of Sector 23, works as a sales manager with a Russian firm in Udhyog Vihar, Phase-4. Police sources said Rastogi parked his car in plot no-334 on Thursday morning. The plot is used as a parking lot by the employees of companies located nearby such as Aricent, Polaris and Spicejet Airlines.
When Rastogi was parking his car, security guards of the airlines firm objected to it.
However, he paid no heed to them and said that the staff of nearby companies also parked their vehicles in the area.
On this, the guards allegedly threatened him. Rastogi went ahead and parked his car and then proceeded towards his office.
When the victim returned at 8.30pm, he found that his car tyres had been deflated. When Rastogi confronted the guards, four security men allegedly argued with him. An altercation broke out and one of the guards allegedly held Rastogi from his neck and abused him. On hearing the commotion, three more guards also reached the spot and also allegedly assaulted the victim.
Rastogi injured his elbow and fractured a leg. He also dislocated his shoulder.
He was immediately rushed to Columbia Asia Hospital in Palam Vihar. He was discharged from the hospital on Saturday.
Subsequently, a complaint was registered against the four security guards of the airlines firm at the Sector 18 police station. The police are investigating the incident. “The accused guards will be arrested soon,” police officials said. No arrests were made till Saturday evening.
