Dilip Sawant, additional commissioner of police (north region), said, “While scanning the CCTV footage of the society, we found the accused had entered a private property and dragged the victim out, where they assaulted him. Consequently, section 452 (house-trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint) of the Indian Penal Code was added to the case and they were re-arrested.”
