Police have booked a Ghaziabad resident after he allegedly assaulted and threatened a security guard for questioning him regarding his presence in the society.
In a purported video which began circulating on social media on Saturday, the resident appears to repeatedly strike the security guard, Satveer Sharma, in the head multiple times before a woman intervenes to stop the scuffle.
Poonam Mishra, CO-City 2, said, “On October 10 at Windsor Paradise Society in Raj Nagar Extension, a newly arrived resident was questioned by the security guard after which the resident beat up the guard. Based on the guard’s complaint, an FIR has been registered at Nandgram station for necessary action.”
According to the FIR, Satveer, who was posted in the society’s D Tower, had asked the resident his name and flat number around 10 pm. The guard did not know him since he had moved in only four or five days ago.
Satveer said it was his job to ascertain these details, but he was allegedly beaten up and abused by the man for doing so. Satveer also alleged that he had threatened to kill him if he filed a police complaint, and that he was still in pain and cannot hear properly.
Police said the FIR was filed under IPC sections 323 (voluntary hurt), 504 (insult with intent to breach peace), and 506 (criminal intimidation).
